§ Mr. Carter
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list in the Official Report those items that comprise the cost of living index.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
The list of some 350 items for which prices are collected for use in calculating the General Index of Retail Prices is published in a booklet entitled "Method of Construction and Calculation of the Index of Retail Prices".
As the list would occupy several pages of the Official Report, I am sending a copy of the booklet to the hon. Member.
