§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will discuss with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy and the Society of County Treasurers the possibility of a speedier production of local authority financial statistics for the personal social services; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alfred Morris
The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy assures me that figures are published as early as the receipt—and times for printing—of returns from local authorities will allow. The Society of County Treasurers, although still involved in the compilation of these statistics, is no longer concerned in their publication.
