HC Deb 15 December 1978 vol 960 c661W
Mr. Grylls

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether access to the Treasury economic model is given to the National Enterprise Board ; and whether access was given for the production of its economic indicator paper.

Mr. Joel Barnett:

The National Enterprise Board is given access to the Treasury model on exactly the same terms as any private commercial organisation. It subscibes to ITEM, one of the private forecasting clubs that supplies forecasts to members prepared using the Treasury model.

No direct access is given for the production of its Economic Indicator Paper.
