To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the average turnover of companies with limited status in the UK, as reported to the Inland Revenue, in the last year for which figures are available. 
§ Dawn Primarolo
It is not possible to provide an accurate estimate of the average turnover of companies from information held centrally by the Inland Revenue. However, relevant information on the numbers and turnover of companies and public corporations can be found in Table 6 of the Department of Trade and Industry Small Business Service publication "Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Statistics for the UK 2000" which is located at: www.sbs.gov.uk/content/statistics/stats2000.pdf.
