HL Deb 11 October 1993 vol 549 c6WA
Lord Sefton of Garston

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much investment they or their agencies have planned since 1981.

The Earl of Caithness

Total public sector investment between 1981–82 and 1992–93, measured as public sector asset creation, is estimated to be £305 billion. This includes the investment spending of nationalised industries now privatised, while they remained in the public sector.
