§ 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.
