§ 60. Mr. Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the reason for the fall in the index of industrial production in May by more than 3 per cent. compared with the same month last year; and why in the first five months of this year, production is less than 1 per cent. up, whereas in the first five months of 1955 production increased by 6 per cent. compared with 1954.
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply I made to the hon. Member for Stechford (Mr. Roy Jenkins) on 12th June.
