The Treasury is today re-issuing the tables for public expenditure by country and region that were released in Chapter 8 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA 2003), published on 6 May. These tables are being re-issued in order to correct for errors in the estimates of spending per head by country and region arising from the use of wrong population data.
PESA 2003 was published as a Command Paper (Com 5901). The revised tables are being re-issued, and laid before Parliament, as a corrigendum to Cm5901. The revised tables have also been placed on the Treasury website.
