HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 c656W
Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate he has made of the increasing cost of local government in the area making up the new Cleveland county, and how this compares with the costs of local government in the same area in the years 1970, 1971 and 1972.

Mr. Graham Page

None. It is for each local authority to make its own estimates of expenditure.
