HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 cc548-9W
Mr. Gould

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing for each year since 1978 and 1985 to date the change in the balance of payments on current account together with his estimate of the effect each year on (a) the United Kingdom money supply and (b) the level of domestic credit.

Mr. Peter Rees

Figures showing the accounting relationship between the balance of payments and the external and foreign currency counterpart to changes in the money stock together with the components of changes in domestic credit up to the end of 1984 are given in "Financial Statistics" tables 11.5 and 11.6. Similar figures are not yet available for the first quarter of 1985.
