§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will set out in column form the national income and expenditure, respectively, for each year since 1945, showing for each year by how much Government expenditure has exceeded Government income.
§ Mr. Green
I would refer my hon. Friend to the Blue BookNational Income and Expenditure, 1963, which gives, in Table 1, figures for national income and expenditure for each year from 1946–62, and in Table 4 corresponding figures for Central Government receipts and expenditure. Comparable figures for 1945 are not available. Figures for 1963 will be given in the White Paper on Preliminary Estimates of National Income and Balance of Payments to be published on 8th April next.
