HC Deb 26 June 1969 vol 785 c306W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs to what extent his Department's economic assessment to 1972, as contained in the publication "The Task Ahead", will have to be revised in the light of the official conclusion that incorrect trade and balance of payments figures have been issued since 1964; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Shore

While the under-recording does not affect our overall position or the need to maintain the policies set out in "The Task Ahead", it means that the identified visible account is stronger than was thought.
