HC Deb 12 July 1984 vol 63 c666W
25. Mr. Cockeram

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied with the level of company liquidity.

Mr. Peter Rees

The liquidity position of companies surveyed by Department of Trade and Industry is now better than at any time since its 1978 peak. The improvement reflects the strong growth in company profits which were 25 per cent. higher in the 12 months to March of this year than in the previous year.
