HC Deb 04 April 1973 vol 854 c99W
Mr. Wiggin

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish a table showing his estimates of the changes in the costs of industrial building in each of the last five years.

Mr. Channon

I regret that I have no statistics relating specifically to trends in the costs of industrial building. An index of the cost to clients of all new building and civil engineering work is published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office in the quarterly bulletinHousing and Construction Statistics, and the following table gives the index numbers from 1968 to 1972 inclusive.

Building and civil engineering work, Great Britain Indices 1963=100
1968 118
1969 123
1970 131
1971 142
1972 (provisional) 159
