HC Deb 03 March 1969 vol 779 c31W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the present debt burden of local authorities in Scotland; and what were the comparable totals in 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967, respectively.

Mr. Ross

The figures for 1966–67 and previous years are given in Column 12 of Table VIII of the Local Financial Returns (Scotland) for 1966–67, published on 27th September, 1968. Later figures are not available from that source, but a figure for 1967–68 is given on page 106 of Financial Statistics, Volume 81, January 1969, published for the Central Statistical Office.
