HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 c548W
32. Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate is made for the black economy in computing gross domestic product.

Mr. Peter Rees

The allowances made for the black economy were described in the October 1983 issue of Economic Trends, pages 77 and 78, and in the notes section of the 1984 edition of United Kingdom National Accounts, page 113. These publications are available in the Library of the House of Commons.
