HC Deb 14 January 1980 vol 976 cc601-2W
Mr. Park

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the current budget of the Severn-Trent water authority; and how this compares with previous budgets since its formation.

Mr. Fox

It is estimated that in the current financial year the operating expenditure on the revenue account for Severn-Trent water authority will be £241,768,000. Comparable figures for previous years since the formation of the authority are as follows:

Financial year Operating expenditure (£000's) Percentage increase over previous year
1974–75 102,141
1975–76 135,695 32.9
1976–77 152,790 12.6
1977–78 187,005 22.4
1978–79 211,717 13.2

These figures are at outturn not constant prices.
