HC Deb 18 February 1926 vol 191 c2163W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, taking the social services in this country, he will state the amount devoted to the same services in the United States, France, Germany, and Italy, and give in each case the amount of outlay per head of the population?


The differences between the administrative arrangements and social economy of the countries mentioned and those of our own country are so great that I regret that no reliable comparison can be made; indeed, figures on any properly comparative basis are not available.
