HC Deb 18 April 1975 vol 890 c177W
Mr. Nott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide, on the basis of the figures contained in the Financial Statement and Budget Report 1975–76. an estimate of what the public sector borrowing requirement would now be assuming full employment conditions, in the same way in which the Chancellor provided in his Budget Statement an estimate of the public sector borrowing requirement on full employment conditions in 1976–77.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

The reference in the Budget Statement as to how the borrowing requirement would be affected by full employment brought about by higher exports was in general terms only. It can be applied to 1975–76 and to 1976–77.
