HC Deb 04 April 1979 vol 965 c924W
Mr. Michael Roberts

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will estimate general Government expenditure in 1979–80 at outturn prices.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I do not propose to publish an estimate at this time. I refer the hon. Member to table 7 of "The Government's Expenditure Plans 1979–80 to 1982–83" (Cmnd. 7439) for a projection at 1977–78 prices.
