HC Deb 14 July 1997 vol 298 c1W
Mr. Key

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his Budget in March 1998 will be unified to include public expenditure plans. [7709]

Mr. Darling

[holding answer 10 July 1997]: In the Budget, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor announced revised spending allocations for 1998–99. The timing of announcements for the years 1999–00 and beyond will depend on the progress of the Comprehensive Spending Review which is due to conclude in the middle of next year.
