HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 c226W
Mr. Knox

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer from information available from international sources, what was the gross domestic product per head at factor cost in New Zealand for the most recent year for which information is available; and how this compares with the figure in the United Kingdom for the same year.

Mr. Nott

The latest figures available for both countries relate to 1968 and are as follows—New Zealand US $1,666 (fiscal year beginning 1st April, 1968); United Kingdom US $1,586. The figures have been taken from the United Nations Yearbook of National Accounts Statistics but that for the United Kingdom has been revised on the basis of the latest published estimates. The figures have been converted to US dollars at official exchange rates as in the United Nations publication, but this does not necessarily take account of differences in internal purchasing power.
