§ Mr. Dubs
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the reply to the right hon. Member for Swansea, West (Mr. Williams) on 19 January, Official Report, c. 330–31, which privatisation arrangements have involved extra expenditure; and what was the amount.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
Cost information on individual privatisations is not available centrally, but service-wide figures for net savings—that is pay bill savings minus any extra expenditure — are given in note 5 of the seventh report, 1980–81, and the first special report, 1982–83, of the Treasury and Civil Service Committee.
