HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 cc129-30W
Mr. Henderson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide details of the cash limits set for 1983–84.

Mr. Brittan

The cash limits on voted expenditure are listed in table 1 of the Chief Secretary's memorandum on the Supply Estimates 1983–84—Cmnd. 8817. The cash limits on local authority capital spending and other non-voted expenditure are given in the following table.

Yeo. My right hon. Friend the Financial Secretary replied on my behalf on 4 March, saying that we would take account of the society's views in considering the Budget measures. I should point out that to implement the society's recommendations in full would, on its own figures, increase social security expenditure by well over £2 billion.
