HC Deb 06 December 1968 vol 774 c599W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, of the £120.9 million of Government purchases of manufactured imports in 1966–67, what proportion was for use in Scotland; and under what headings the purchases were classified.

Mr. Taverne

It is not possible to quantify the use in Scotland of Government purchases, the great bulk of which are made for the benefit of the United Kingdom generally.
