§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list all the changes that have been made since 1979 in his Department in the presentation of statistical information; and what further changes are now planned.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Recent changes in statistical presentation of information will be dealt with when I write in response to a question of 3 December, at column662, from the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Gould). I will place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.
There are no plans to make major alterations to the present statistical coverage, though we shall of course continue to review the quality and breadth of presentation and to produce occasional papers on matters of interest as appropriate.
