HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c234W
56. Mr. Speed

asked the President of the Board of Trade why his Department is still working on the preparation of reports of statistics for the year 1963.

Mr. Dell

The Census of Production for 1963 was the first of these complex inquiries to be fully processed on a computer. As in other countries, this has presented severe difficulties; but publication of the industry reports should be substantially completed this year.
