HC Deb 08 December 1949 vol 470 c171W
Mr. Leonard

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the amount contributed from Scotland to his Department; and the charge on his Department for Scottish services in the last financial year.

Sir S. Cripps:

I regret that comprehensive information is not available, and I do not consider that in present circumstances the amount of work which would be involved in making the calculations would be justified, especially as any apportionment of revenue between Scotland and the rest of Great Britain would necessarily be in many respects arbitrary.
