HC Deb 13 March 1980 vol 980 cc663-4W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, further to his reply dated 14 January concerning export prices of manufactures, whether he will provide an up-to-date estimate of the position of the guidance of all concerned, including manufacturers who have to determine their export capability against a rising real exchange rate.

Mr. Lawson

Most recent data concerning the export price of United Kingdom manufactures is published as soon as it becomes available inEconomic Trends, British Business and in table B32 of Monthly Review of External Trade Statistics. The most up-to-date inter- national comparison of relative cost and price indices for manufacturing can be obtained from IMF International Financial Statistics.
