HC Deb 13 January 2003 vol 397 cc411-2W
Mr. Salmond

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the total Government expenditure on contingent liabilities which came to fruition was in each year since 1992. [89387]

Mr. Boateng

The information is not held centrally. When a contingent liability becomes an actual liability, the resulting expenditure is scored in both departmental accounts and national accounts.
