HC Deb 30 January 1976 vol 904 c377W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will review the provision and use of automatic assistance to his officials in view of recent errors in official statistics.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Automatic assistance in the shape of adding and calculating machinery is freely available to those officials who have a need for it. The provision of this assistance is constantly under review to meet changing requirements.
