asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the increase in output per worker in manufacturing industry over the latest 10-year period in both percentage and volume terms.
Net output at 1970 prices per person employed in manufacturing industry increased by £470 or 36 per cent. between 1964 and 1974. The figures of persons employed used in the estimates include employees in employment, employers and self-employed persons; full-time and part-time workers are all counted as full units. Data on employment have been taken from Department of Employment sources.
