§ 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.]
