HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c21W
Mr. Mitchell

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the effect of the current sterling exchange rate on(a) employment and (b) manufacturing in the United Kingdom. [52594]

Mrs. Liddell

The economic effects of the exchange rate are difficult to isolate without assumptions about factors such as the strength of world trade growth and domestic demand. A full assessment of the economic situation including a forecast was given in the FSBR.
