HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 c128W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the central government expenditure in social security in 1967 in Wales, Scotland and England, respectively; and what were the sums contributed by employers and insured workers in the three countries.

Mr. Taverne

Identifiable public expenditure in Scotland on social security benefits was £265.3 million in 1966–67. Separate expenditure figures for England and Wales are not available; I am, however, arranging for these figures to be available for 1968–69 and future financial years. Separate figures for contributions in the three countries are not available.
