HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c129W
93. Mr. Wyatt

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will now give the revised figures for the balance of payments for the first five months of this year and for the previous five years following upon the errors in calculation of exports; and why the corrected figures have been delayed.

Mr. Harold Lever

As my hon. Friend the Minister of State at the Board of Trade informed my hon. Friend earlier today, it is hoped to make a further announcement on under-recording shortly.

The detailed consideration of the problems involved has necessarily taken some time.
