HC Deb 28 October 1976 vol 918 cc358-9W
Mr. Crawford

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total amount of central Government public expenditure in 1975–76; and what proportion of that was spent in the GLC area and non-GLC parts of the Home Counties of Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire, Hertfordshire, Kent and Buckinghamshire, or the nearest equivalent of that total area.

Mr. Joel Barnett

Central Government public expenditure in 1975–76 was £34,122 million, including debt interest. No corresponding figure is available for expenditure in London and the home counties, nor for the South-East Region.

Mr. Gow

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he proposes to publish the next White Paper on Public Expenditure.

Mr. Joel Barnett

The next Public Expenditure White Paper will be published after the Government have completed their review of public expenditure.
