Mr. Timms: Information on total identifiable expenditure for each region of England and for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is set out in the HM Treasury publication, Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) 2006, May 2006.

Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2002-03, May 2002, provides outturn data from 1996-97.
The Office for National Statistics provides data on gross value added (GVA), the Governments preferred measure of regional economic output, for each region and country of the UK on its website at http://www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_economy/NUTS1_Tables_1-8.xs.

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question about public sector employment by country and region. (89403)
The available estimates, which are annual averages of quarterly figures, are shown in the attached table. Figures by region are not available earlier than 1999.
These estimates are based on returns from public sector organisations, combined with approximate breakdowns from the Labour Force Survey for Wales and the English regions. As these figures are partly based on sample surveys, they are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
|Public sector employment by region and country of workplace; headcount|
|North East||North West||Yorks and Humber||East Midlands||East||London||South East|
|South East||South West||England||Wales||Scotland||Northern Ireland||United Kingdom|
