The following figures show the total outturn of public expenditure for the years 1976–77 to to regional support in Great Britain are the standard capital grants scheme, administered by the Department of Economic Development, and the selective financial assistance provided by the Industrial Development Board or— in the case of smaller companies—by the local enterprise development unit. Gross expenditure on these elements, and on employment and training measures, since 1970, are as follows. Records are not kept of expenditure by county.1983–84 for those services which are the direct responsibility either of the Northern Ireland Office or of Northern Ireland Departments. These figures are as far as possible on a consistent basis in terms of the services covered, and reflect the definitions of public expenditure contained in the 1984 Public Expenditure White Paper (Cmnd. 9143). Figures for earlier years could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
