§ 50. Mr. Erroll
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Economic Survey for 1951 is not yet published; and why it is so much later in appearing than those for former years.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
The Economic Survey for 1951 is being published today. The delay of a week or two in comparison with the last few years which I regret, was due to the need for covering fully in the Survey the economic implications of the new defence programme.
