§ Mr. Ridley
asked the Secertary of State for the Environment what is the effect of the £18 million of current, and £198 million of capital, cuts made in the spending plans of his Department as a conquence of the Budget.
§ Mr. Crosland
Of the cuts on current and capital expenditure in 1976–7 listed by my right hon. Friend in his Written Answer of 17th April—[Vol. 890, c. 144.] —the share falling to my programmes is as follows:
£ million at 1974 survey prices, Current expenditure on goods and services capital Roads and transport 6 65 Housing — 50 Other environmental services 9 51 Common services (Property Services Agency) 1 6 16 172
I am still considering how in detail the reductions should be apportioned.
