HC Deb 08 November 1974 vol 880 c255W
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish such figures as are available to him showing the comparison between the government costs in England and Wales before and since reorganisation taking account of charges caused by function transference.

Mr. John Silkin

These figures are not available. We have as yet no final ex-expenditure figures for 1974–75, the first year of reorganised local government.
