asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the estimated total expenditure of local government in Wales for each of the past 15 years at current prices and at constant prices.
I refer the hon. Member to Table 3 on pages 52 and 53 of "Local Government Financial Statistics England and Wales 1972–73". Statistics in the same form for 1973–74 are in course of preparation. The information asked for is not readily available at constant prices.
