HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c1877
42. Mr. Jay

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he proposes to introduce an Economic Survey for 1955.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I hope to publish the Economic Survey towards the end of this month.

Mr. Jay

Can the Chancellor assure the House that the Survey will contain a realistic and objective account of the situation, and not the sort of cheerful optimism which we have had from his speeches?

Mr. Butler

It will be up to the level which has been maintained since this Government took office.
