HC Deb 12 June 1995 vol 261 cc395-6W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to table 15.10 of the April 1995 issue of the "Monthly Digest of Statistics", if he will now combine the table on page 96 with those on pages 97 and 98 by removing the words "manufacture of" at the beginning of each line; and if he will add to each line the relevant weight. [27499]

Mr. Nelson

The information in table 15.10 of the "Monthly Digest of Statistics" is presented in accordance with its periodical collection. The data on page 96 relate to those sectors where quarterly information is available—annual information is also presented—and the data on paged 97 and 98 relate to those sectors where only annual information is available. The Central Statistical Office will continue to publish the quarterly information on page 96 separately from the annual information on pages 97 and 98.

Details relating to "weights" for the manufacturing sector will not be added to table 15.10, but this information can be found in table 2.5 of the "United Kingdom National Accounts 1994".
