asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is his estimate of the return on capital employed in British industry in each of the past five years; and what is his forecast for the current year.

The figures requested are given in an article "Companies' rate of return on capital employed: 1960 to 1980" in British Business 18 September 1981. I have made no forecasts for the current year.
