To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the level of invisible earnings each year since 1970 and for each month since January 1989 both at current prices and at constant 1989 prices.

[holding answer 18 January 1990]: The latest estimates of invisibles at current prices and of trade in services at constant prices are given in "Economic Trends" for December 1989 (tables A1 and A3) and on the CSO databank. An assessment of all invisibles at constant prices can be made using the implied gross domestic product price deflators published in "Economic Trends" (table 2) and on the CSO databank. These publications are available in the Library.
