asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state in itemised form his estimates of the additional cost involved to public funds in Her Majesty's Government's proposals for legislation in the present Session and their administrative decisions announced since its commencement.
The information in the form requested by the right hon. Gentleman is not readily available. With permission, I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT tomorrow. The right hon. Gentleman will, however, be glad to learn that the cost will be contained within the limit on the annual increase in public expenditure of 4¼ per cent. at constant prices.
