§ 13. Mr. Austin Mitchell
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimates about productivity in 1982–83 442W were taken into account in the assumptions made as to the level of unemployment in "The Government's Expenditure Plans, 1982–83 to 1984–85"—Cmnd. 8494.
§ Mr. Brittan
As usual, the working assumptions on unemployment in 1982–83 took into account the recent trend in unemployment, which itself reflects developments in productivity.
