HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 cc312-3W
38. Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will arrange for an on-line terminal to the Central Statistical Office macro-economic data bank described in the November, 1971, issue of Statistical News to be made available in the House of Commons for the use of Members and Library research staff.

Mr. Whitelaw

The Central Statistical Office data bank is held on a small computer which cannot be equipped with on-line terminal facilities.
