HC Deb 28 April 1981 vol 3 cc366-7W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Prime Minister how much public money has been spent in each of the last three years, including rate support grant, partnership money, unemployment pay, supplementary benefit and other similar categories in (a) Lambeth, and (b) every other district council area.
