§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects to publish the Index of Industrial Production for Wales in the third quarter of 1977; and what is the cause of the delay.239W
§ Mr. John Morris
The Index of Industrial Production for Wales for the third quarter of 1977 was issued on Friday 10th February. This was approximately one month later than planned. The delay was due to a complete revision of the series from the base date 1970, incorporating a number of improvements in data and technique.
