HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 cc160-1W
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.
