HC Deb 25 March 1926 vol 193 cc1404-6W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is able to issue a statement showing the expenditure of public money in the year 1925–26 in the form of State grants or subsidies?


The estimated total of Grant Services for the year 1925–26 (including education, housing, health, police, local taxation, beet sugar subsidy and all Irish Services) is shown in the Tables relating to National Expenditure (Command Paper 2613) issued in connection with the Economy Bill, as, £90,309,000. These figures, as the Tables show, relate to the original Estimates. Supplementary Estimates include further sums for Grant Services and subsidies (including the coal mining industry subvention, the British Empire Exhibition guarantee, and other Services) amounting to £22,797,000.
