HC Deb 25 March 1975 vol 889 cc131-2W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of the Government's total expenditure on all goods and services is spent in Wales.

Mr. Joel Barnett:

There are some important elements in Government expenditure which cannot reliably be allocated to particular territories. However, identifiable public expenditure in Wales is estimated to be 5.1 per cent. of compar- able expenditure in Great Britain in 1973–74.
