HC Deb 11 February 1982 vol 17 cc446-7W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing for each of the years 1970–71 to 1981–82 at whatever price bases are readily available (a) the analysis of relevant expenditure by programmes included in the annual Rate Support Grant (Scotland) Order and (b) a comparable analysis of the outturn.

Mr. Younger

I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on 20 February 1981 to his question about expenditure for the years 1970–71 to 1979–80. [Vol. 999, c. 213–14.] A breakdown of these figures over expenditure programmes is given in the published Appropriation Accounts for the Vote for rate support grants to local revenues, Scotland, copies of which are available in the Library. Similar information for 1980–81 is given in the Appropriation Accounts for that year. Outturn information for 1981–82 is not yet available.
