HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 cc307-8W
Mr. Marples

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what studies are being made in his Department to improve the presentation of the Civil Estimates in such a way as to express the figures in management accounting terms; and when he expects to be able to make a statement on the results.

Mr. Diamond

I doubt whether the Civil Estimates can usefully be adapted to provide the primary instrument of management accounting; but work is in progress in other directions to improve management accounting in Government.
