HC Deb 21 March 1985 vol 75 c599W
48. Mr. Michael Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the likely duration of the current recovery.

Mr. Peter Rees

The Budget forecast suggests continuation of a healthy rate of growth at least into 1986. On the basis of the forecast, economic growth will have averaged 2½ per cent. a year in the five years since the first half of 1981.
