HC Deb 13 April 1984 vol 58 c398W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now publish tables showing the income and expenditure of central and local government in respect of transfer payments separately from the raising and expenditure of funds for other purposes of government.

Mr. Peter Rees

Quarterly estimates of income and expenditure are published in tables 3.1, 3.2, 4.1, 4.2 of "Financial Statistics". These tables also provide information on transfer payments. Longer runs of figures are published annually in sections 7 and 8 of "National Income and Expenditure". The table on pages 162–164 of the 1984 edition of "Economic Trends Annual Supplement" gives a summary of transfer payments by general government (central Government plus local authorities) annually from 1946 and quarterly from 1961.
