HC Deb 25 July 1983 vol 46 c306W
Mr. Gould

asked the chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish in the Official Report a table showing for each year since 1953 the increase in productivity in manufacturing industry for the Organisation for Economic Co-opertion and Development countries collectively and individually.

Mr. Moore

For the period 1966–1981 this information is published by the OECD in table 3.10 of its annual report Historical Statistics 1960–1981. For earlier years information is not readily available. Nor are comparable data for 1982 available yet.
