    #82 See figure 1 in the section entitled: 3. Total spending remained unchanged when compared with a year ago
    Total average weekly household expenditure remained level at £528.90 in the financial year ending 2016 (2015/16) when compared with the same period a year ago, where figures are adjusted for inflation.

    Then click on the CURRENT PRICES tab. An increase of £130+ per week since 2002 is more like a 2.3% year on year price increase to tread water with that rate.

    The public sector received 1% for 7 out of 9 years of the austerity period, the other 2 years they received 0%.
