HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c233W
Mr. Newton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he now expects to be the Government borrowing requirement in 1974–75; and how this compares with the outturn for 1973–74 and with his estimates on 26th March.

Mr. Joel Barnett

It is not customary to give forecasts of the borrowing requirement other than at Budget time.
