HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c803W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the total identifiable public expenditure in Scotland in each year since 1979; if he will express each figure at constant prices; and what has been the percentage annual change in expenditure at constant prices.

Mr. Younger

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 8 December 1981 by my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, Central (Mr. Cook). Figures for identifiable public expenditure at constant prices are not available.—[Vol. 14, c. 384–96.]
