§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
Part III of the 1968–69 Financial Statement sets out in considerable detail the Government's assessment of the economic outlook to mid–1969.
§ Mr. Emery
I thank the right hon. Gentleman for having complied with part of my Question since I put it down. May I ask whether Table 13 in Part III, which he refers to and which is dealt with on a six-monthly basis, can be published in order that the six months may be brought up to date? Will he consider whether some other convenient reviews on six-monthly bases might also be published so that we might be able to realise the vast amount of Government run-away expenditure that is going on?
§ Mr. Jenkins
I thought until the hon. Gentleman got to the last part of his supplementary question that he was seriously asking for information. I see that I was misled. I am perfectly willing to consider any further useful publication for the future but I remind the House, as I have done before, that, in publishing these forecasts, I have done something which no other Chancellor has done before. It is reasonable to see how we go for a year on the basis of these figures and then consider whether or not we can amplify them somewhat.
