Contrary to standard empirical studies of demand for public consumption expenditure a system of demand equations is examined where the total expenditure variable is considered endogenous in the sense that it is correlated with the equation errors. Using a recently available UK dataset we explore alternative specifications of an auxiliary equation for total expenditure, which depend on prices and other instrumental variables, and apply a Hausman-type and a likelihood ratio test of exogeneity. The results reject exogeneity and suggest that when endogeneity of total expenditure is taken into account the constraints of homogeneity and symmetry cannot be rejected.
