HC Deb 14 June 1956 vol 554 c47W
57. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion the expenditure on police and fire services bears to the total rate expenditure of local authorities in Scotland; and what he estimates the figure would be if street lighting were included.

Mr. J. Stuart

For 1949–50, the latest year for which complete data are available, the proportion was 9 per cent. for police and fire services taken together, and 14 per cent. including street lighting.
