HC Deb 06 June 1996 vol 278 c514W
Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what were the average living standards in each Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development country in 1995; and what was the gap between the United Kingdom and the OECD average. [30796]

Mrs. Angela Knight

The most commonly cited single measure of living standards for which valid international comparison can be made is gross domestic product per capita.

The 1995 figures for GDP per capita are available for all OECD countries in the OECD publication "Main Economic Indicators", which is available in the House of Commons Library.
