33. Mr. Dykes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is satisfied with the movement of the leading indications of the economy between the second quarter of 1981 and the end of the first quarter of 1982.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

The leading indicators suggest that the recovery, which started in second quarter of 1931, will continue. This view is consistent with other evidence and forecasts.
