To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which regions in England have seen a reduction in constant value terms in manufacturing industries from 1979 to the latest year for which figures are available.

I have been asked to reply. Current prices estimates for regions of manufacturing gross domestic product are published annually and provisional figures for 1988 may be found in "Economic Trends" No. 433, November 1989, pages 92 and 93: a copy is available in the Library. Constant price estimates, however, are not made because there are no regional price indices.
