§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his latest estimate of the balance of payments deficit for 1968; and, in view of the fact that Government expenditure and personal spending are both still rising, on what data he calculates his forecast that a surplus of £500 million in 1969 will be reached.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
