HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 c655W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the course of 1980, earnings in manufacturing industry have increased more or less than the appreciation in the exchange rate.

Mr. Lawson

This information can be calculated from widely available published sources. I would refer the hon. Member to table 5.1 of theDepartment of Employment Gazette (October, pS45) and table 13.4 of Financial Statistics (October, p136).
