asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will circulate in the Official Report a table showing the estimated growth for each year since 1970, in terms of cash and as a percentage, of the various types of consumer and industrial credit, including leasing.
Information is published in Financial Statistics in tables derived from the sector financial accounts. The most appropriate references are tables 9.2, 10.2 and 10.3 in the October 1979 issue. Assets purchased by financial companies for leasing to industrial and commercial companies are classified in the sector accounts as investment in fixed assets by financial companies. The available information on sectors using leased assets is presented on page 134 of National Income and Expenditure: 1979 Edition.
