HC Deb 15 February 1989 vol 147 c200W
Mr. Blunkett

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he plans to seek improvements in the information gathered by his Department on the economy.

Mr. Major

The Treasury is directly responsible only for statistics on official reserves, though it is also responsible jointly with CSO for the public sector debt repayment figures. It is always looking to improve its information gathering.
