HC Deb 27 October 2003 vol 412 cc40-1WS
Dr. Cable

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of(a) non-residential business investment, (b) residential business investment. (c) public investment and (d) total investment in (i) 1995 market prices and (ii) current prices, as a proportion of GDP, since 1997; and if he will make a statement. [134134]

Mr. Boateng

Latest figures for investment by sector and GDP at current market prices were released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as part of the 2003 Blue Book dataset on 30 September. The ONS no longer publishes data at constant 1995 prices, having now replaced them with chained volume measures as indicators of growth in real magnitudes in the national accounts.
