§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the average rate of growth of (a) gross national product, (b) manufacturing output, (c) productivity and (d) inflation for the following periods (i) 1954 to 1964, (ii) 1964 to 1974, (iii) 1970 to 1974, (iv) 1974 to 1979 and (v) 1979 to 1984.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
The available information is given in the table. Data for 1984 are not yet available, and the fifth period of comparison therefore covers the years 1979 to 1983 only.
