To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will state in the Official Report the value of manufacturing investment, including leased assests, in Wales for each year since 1978, in cash and constant prices.

The following table shows, at current (cash) prices, the value of net capital expenditure in Wales from 1978 to 1987. Data for later years are not yet available. The data exclude the value of assets leased from the financial industries as this information is not available for Wales. Constant price data are available only for the United Kingdom as a whole.
