§ Mr. Joseph Dean
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the (a) total and (b) per capita expenditure on social services for each relevant local authority in England at the latest date for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Moyle
This information is contained in the Statistical Information Service—Social Services Statistics—published by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, copies of which are in the Library. The most recent figures of actual total expenditure and 99W expenditure per 1,000 population are for 1975–76. Estimates for 1977–78 include forecast expenditure per 1,000 population, and total population, but do not have these combined into total expenditure figures.
