§ Mrs. Kellett-Bowman
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish such information as is available to him as to the results of research into the earnings-savings ratio of the different United Kingdom regions; and if he will take steps to commission further such research.
§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
[pursuant to the reply, 29 July 1982]: Research of the kind mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Lancaster is not being undertaken, and the commissioning of such research is not at present an immediate priority. However, figures on the personal disposable income-savings ratio for Scotland will be published in August in the "Scottish Economic Bulletin."
