HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 c28W
The Earl of Dalkeith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what information he has as to how output per head of the population in Great Britain, measured in £s sterling, compares with that of West Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Italy, respectively.

Mr. Green

The table below shows the gross national product, at factor cost, per head of the population in 1962. The figures are given in national currencies, since conversion to sterling at the official rates of exchange would be misleading.

Country Gross national product per head of population
United Kingdom £470
West Germany (including West Berlin DM. 5,370
Belgium Frs. 61,300
France NF. 6,420
Netherlands Guilders 3,660
Italy Lire 432,000
