44. Mr. Brian Harrison
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the annual average percentage rise in real personal saving between 1951 and 1964; and what it has been since 1964.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
Revalued at constant 1958 prices, personal savings rose by about 17.6 per cent. per annum between 1951 and 1964 and by about 2.6 per cent. per annum between 1964 and the first nine months of 1968, taken as an annual rate. Complete figures for 1968 are not yet available.
