Note:

The effects of industrial disputes may have produced distortions in the allocation of trade to individual months in the first seven months of 1979 Figures for these months should therefore be interpreted with caution. More generally, it should be noted that figures for individual months omit subsequent corrections incorporated in the latest published cumulative figures.
