37. Mr. Gourlay

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the estimate of expenditure in Scotland under the terms of the Local Employment Act in 1963–64; and how this compares with 1960–61, 1961–62, and 1962–63, respectively.

Mr. Erroll

Estimates of expenditure under the Local Employment Act are not prepared separately by country, but the amounts spent in Scotland were £3.4 million in 1960–61, £18.5 million in 1961–62 and £11.1 million in 1962–63 (eleven months ended 28th February), representing 29, 56 and 60 per cent. respectively of total expenditure.
