HC Deb 10 March 1964 vol 691 c25W
36. Mr. Healey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what action he is taking to ensure that the expenditure of all Government Departments is kept within the Estimates published in Command Paper No. 2235.

Mr. Maudling

The figures in the White Paper, which cover more than the expenditure of Government Departments, are an approximate calculation of the prospective level of public expenditure in 1967–68 on the basis of the Government's present policies and programmes. They do not represent a Government decision about the level of expenditure in that year.
