HC Deb 23 February 1920 vol 125 cc1336-7W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the future, Returns of public expenditure under various Acts, which he has promised to issue annually in continuance of Parliamentary Paper, No. 218, of 1919, he will give directions that administrative expenditure should be stated separately, so that, for instance, comparisons may be instituted between different areas and that capital and current expenditure may be shown separately, so that, for instance, the proportion of salaries to upkeep may be made clear?


I will consult the Departments concerned as to the practicability of this suggestion.
