asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the number of jobs created on the basis that Great Britain achieved a sustained growth rate of 5 per cent. per year in the period 1972 to 1975.
§ Mr. Higgins
A sustained growth rate of 5 per cent. a year would be expected to lead to a substantial increase in employment. But it is not Government practice to publish forecasts of the level of employment.
