Mr. Hordern

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further reductions in public expenditure for 1967–68 will be made to reach the total of £150 million announced on 20th July last, apart from the reductions already announced on 25th July last; and what reductions are being made to meet the promised reduction in public expenditure overseas of £100 million.

Mr. Callaghan

Reductions totalling approximately £150 million have been made in public investment programmes for 1967–68 as they stood at 20th July, 1966, in accordance with the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister that day. [Vol. 732, c. 632]. As to the saving of £100 million in overseas Government expenditure I would refer the hon. Member to the Reply which I gave to the hon. Member for South Angus (Mr. Bruce-Gardyne) on 24th January [Vol. 732, c 1259–61].
