HC Deb 03 April 1979 vol 965 c669W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the Government's forecast of percentage increases in local government spending in Scotland in real terms for each year since 1974–75; what is the actual percentage increase in local government spending for each year; and what is the amount overspent in percentage terms.

Mr. Millan

I regret that information about local authority expenditure in Scotland since 1974–75 is not yet complete.
