asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he will publish in HANSARD a table of figures giving the percentage rise or fall, since the introduction of the Government's wage pause policy, in the following, namely, rents, wages, dividends, profits, cost of diving, purchasing value of the £ sterling, retail price index, imports, exports, terms of trade, employment and unemployment and Government expenditure.
