HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c427W
Mr. Hirst

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total estimated expenditure, both current and capital, by all public authorities on education, child care, school meals and milk, welfare foods, the National Health Service, National Insurance, war pensions, National Assistance, family allowances, and housing in the latest available year compared with 1951– 52.

Mr. Green

I would refer my hon. Friend to the set of special tables dealing with expenditure on social services and housing published in the May, 1964, issue of the Monthly Digest of Statistics. Table A of this set gives total expenditure for each of the items mentioned in the question for each year from 1949– 50 to 1963– 64 inclusive.
