§ Mr. McElhone
The information is as follows:
Value of Starts in 18 months to 31 March 1977 £000 Allocation 536 Amount taken up 195 Expenditure in year to 31 March 1978 Allocation 79 Amount taken up 19
Before the financial year 1977–78, allocations were in terms of the value of work to be started in the periods to which they related: from 1977–78 they have been in terms of expenditure to be incurred in financial years. Part of the expenditure in the year to 31 March 1978 is therefore in respect of projects started before that year.
