HC Deb 09 December 1963 vol 686 cc44-6W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimated rate of capital investment in the public sector on a per capita basis in each of the next five years in Northern Ireland, compared with the rest of the United Kingdom, and with each of the growth areas in the North-East of England and in Central Scotland, respectively.

Mr. Green

The future level of public investment in Northern Ireland is within the responsibility of the Government of Northern Ireland; and my hon. Friend may have noticed that in the Parliament of Northern Ireland on 26th November the Minister of Finance explained why he could not at present give any figures for 1964–65—or, by implication, for any future years.
