HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c334W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give his estimate of the total identifiable expenditure of the Government in Wales in 1978–79.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I regret that the information requested is not yet available. Estimates of identifiable public expenditure are compiled in an annual exercise in the late summer. Figures for 1977–78 were published in the answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend (Mr. Ovenden) on 17 January 1979.—[Vol. 960, c. 781–94.]
