HC Deb 30 October 1975 vol 898 cc598-9W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing for each nationalised industry—taking the latest available figures—the current deficit on both a per capita and a per family basis.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

The latest available accounts of the two nationalised industries for which I am responsible show surpluses or deficits in respect of the financial year 1974–75. The population of Great Britain at the 1971 census was approximately 54 million and there were 14.5 million families at the same date. Following is the information requested:

date for which he has details; and how these figures compare with those of the previous five years, respectively.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

The answer is not readily available.
