asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total cost of Scottish administration, national and local government, respectively, per head of the population; and if he will give an estimate of the relative figures for England and Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

If the hon. Member will let me know what he means by "administration" in the case of the central Government, I will see if the answer to that part of his Question can be obtained without the expenditure of a disproportionate amount of time and labour. In the case of local authorities it will not be possible to give any figures other than those of total expenditure.
