§ 47. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the Bulletin of Industry is issued at the cost of the taxpayer, he will, in order to make the information therein contained more helpful and complete, include tables showing the purchasing power of the £ for the past 10 years and the increase in dividends, wages and profits for the same period.
§ Sir S. Cripps
The information referred to by the hon. Member was published in its latest available form last April and is not therefore appropriate to the "Industrial Bulletin," which is a review of current economic developments. The suggestion will, however, be borne in mind when fresh figures are published.
§ Sir W. Smithers
As this "Industrial Bulletin" is really nothing more than Socialist propaganda, will the right hon. and learned Gentleman stop the publication of it altogether?
