§ Mr. David Howell
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish estimates of (a) total public expenditure and (b) spending on main programmes as proposed in Command Paper No. 4234 and Command Paper No. 5519, in index number form, and, if possible, in £ million, cost terms.
§ Mr. Joel Barnett
The figures are in the table below:
the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales, respectively. Those tables include most of the "identifiable" expenditure in these countries, apart from expenditure on social security and trade, industry and employment. Population statistics and projections will be found in various publications, including the Annual Abstract of Statistics.
