HC Deb 09 March 1981 vol 1000 cc253-4W
Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what were the outturn figures for current expenditure by each local authority in England for each of the last four financial years at November 1980 prices.

Mr. King

I have today placed in the Libray of the House copies of the figures relating to 1978–79. Figures for earlier years are not available on the same basis, and could not be provided without disproportionate cost. Returns for 1979–80 are still incomplete.
