asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in the Official Report for each year from 1945 to 1981 the proportion of both industrial production and manufacturing output which was undertaken by (a) private United Kingdom firms, (b) private non-United Kingdom firms, (c) nationalised industries and (d) other State-owned firms.

I regret the information requested is not available. The index of industrial production and the supporting statistics upon which it is based are classified according to activity, not ownership. Where there is a direct correspondence between activity and ownership, it would be possible to classify output in the form requested.
