HC Deb 04 March 1999 vol 326 c862W
33. Mr. Swayne

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what account he takes of the savings ratio in policy decisions. [72449]

Ms Hewitt

The Government are aiming to promote economic stability and part of this strategy is to avoid large cyclical swings in the saving ratio such as those seen in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
