asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the cost of collecting information from local authorities on the co-option of disabled people to their committees as recommended by section 15 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act.
I am not in a position to estimate the costs to local authorities
|MANUFACTURED GOODS CLASSIFIED CHIEFLY BY MATERIAL (SECTION 6) EXCLUDING PRECIOUS STONES (667) AND NON-FERROUS METALS (DIVISION 69*)|
|O.T.S. basis 1975=100|
|Unit Value Index Not seasonally adjusted||Volume Index Seasonally adjusted|
|* In 1975, the base year of the series, precious metals (SITC Group 681) accounted for 30 per cent, of exports and 22 per cent, of imports of Division 68.|
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what effect the exclusion of precious metals and precious stones would have on the import and export unit values of manufactures in the years since 1975; and what the corres- of providing this information, but the cost to my Department would be about £300.
