§ 14. Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what has been the average annual growth in manufacturing output since 1979. 
§ Mr. Oppenheim
Since 1979, manufacturing output has grown at an average annual rate of 0.7 per cent.
§ Mr. Garnier
Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the greatest successes of the Major years has been manufacturing industries in the east midlands, an area that both he and I represent? Will he also ignore all history lessons from Opposition Front Benchers, who clearly do not know the difference between Joseph and Austen Chamberlain?
