HC Deb 21 June 1976 vol 913 cc364-5W
Mr. Nott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish the percentage increases in expenditure forecast in the previous year and the outturn for the years 1972–73, 1973–74 and 1974–75, in cost and in volume terms (a) for expenditure by local authorities on capital account, current account and in total and (b) for supply services.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.

Mrs. Castle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it remains his intention to keep public expenditure at roughly the same level for the years 1976–77 to 1979–80 as is indicated in Command Paper No. 6393.

Mr. Joel Barnett

Future plans will depend on the outcome of the current public expenditure survey.
