HC Deb 06 March 1961 vol 636 c14W
Mr. Nabarro

asked the Minister of Power to what extent the higher coal and electricity prices recently announced will enable these industries to finance capital expenditure programmes to a greater extent than before from their own internal resources, and thus diminish commensurately the amount of Treasury moneys for that purpose within the provisions of the Finance Act, 1960.

Mr. Wood

I must ask my hon. Friend to await publication of the White Paper on Government expenditure "Below-the-line", which will contain information about the level of internal resources available to finance the capital programmes of the industries in 1960–61 and 1961–62 compared with previous years.
