§ Mr. Norman Lamont
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish in the Official Report a table comparing a proportion of the gross national product represented by the public sector borrowing requirement in the United Kingdom with that in all other EEC countries, Japan and the United States of America, when using the 109W same method of calculating the borrowing requirement as in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Joel Barnett
Comparable figures for public sector borrowing requirements in other countries are not available. Some limited information about public sector deficits was given in my replies to the hon. Member for Horsham and Crawley (Mr. Hordern) on 27th October and to the hon. Member for St. Ives (Mr. Nott) on 12th November.
