HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 cc243-4W
Mr. Lindgren

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will make a statement giving, for each of the new towns for 1953–54 and 1954–55, a revenue return on capital expenditure which is already producing revenue.

Mr. Sandys

I would refer the hon. Member to the published volumes of accounts for the respective years for particulars of the capital expenditure and the income. Subdivision of the capital expenditure between that which is revenue producing and that which is not revenue producing, and the further analysis of the former into that which is already producing revenue and that which is not yet producing revenue, involve so many arbitrary assumptions that the resulting calculations would be misleading.
