§ Mr. Wade
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish the relevant statistics showing the present and estimated future rates of public investment expenditure for each of the country's main regions, under the same headings as those used in Cmnd. Paper 2177 for the country as a whole, but expressing the figures both as totals for each region and as expenditure per head of population in each region.
§ Mr. Green:
The White Papers on Central Scotland and North East England (Cmnd. 2188 and 2206) give information about civil public investment in these two areas. There are also figures for Scotland in Industry and Employment in Scotland, 1962–63 (Cmnd. 2045) and in Public Investment in Great Britain, October, 1963 (Cmnd. 2177). A regional analysis of public investment for the rest of the country as asked for in the Question is not available.
