§ 16. Mr. Fallon
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will estimate the proportion of Wales' gross domestic product that is accounted for by public expenditure.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
In 1985–86, identifiable public expenditure in Wales, as conventionally defined, totalled £5,727 million. This represented about 40 per cent. of an estimated provisional figure for Wales GDP (at market prices) in the calendar year 1985.
