HC Deb 11 June 1986 vol 99 cc200-1W
Mr. Mason

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the estimated costs to his Department of carrying out the accepted recommendations of Select Committee reports for the year March 1985 to March 1986.

Mr. Lawson

[pursuant to his reply, 10 June 1986, c. 170]: The main recommendations in the 1985–86 Session that were made by the TCSC and accepted by the Government relate largely to the presentation and content of future public expenditure White Papers. The cost of the action the Government propose to take in these matters has yet to be incurred and is, in any case, unlikely to be significant in itself. This cost cannot, however, be attributed entirely to the recommendations of the TCSC, since it is not possible to state definitively what action would have been taken in the absence of those recommendations.
