HC Deb 18 June 1980 vol 986 c519W
24. Mr. Neubert

asked the Lord Privy Seal what estimate he makes of expenditure by the British Council in Scandinavia in the current financial year and of comparable expenditure by the Federal Republic of Germany through the Goethe Institutes in those countries.

Mr. Blaker

British Council expenditure in Scandinavia is as follows :

Denmark £225,000
Finland £242,000
Norway £204,000
Sweden £118,000
The figures include an element of headquarters expenditure.

The British Council is not represented in Iceland.

In the time available it was not possible to obtain comparable figures for the Goethe Institutes. When this information is to hand I shall send it to my hon. Friend.
