HC Deb 13 May 1982 vol 23 cc314-5W
28. Mr. Eggar

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that the economy is recovering from the recession.

Mr. Brittan

There are an increasing number of signs that we are now emerging from the recession—including activity and labour market indicators and the latest information on profits, productivity and competitiveness, all of which show signs of improvement. Most vital of all, we are maintaining our success in the fight against inflation.
