HC Deb 07 November 1952 vol 507 c4W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give details of Government saving in expenditure for the year ended October, 1952, in comparison with the year ended October, 1951.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Figures of this kind for periods other than financial years are misleading owing to variations in the incidence of expenditure.
