§ Mr. Austin Mitchell
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will bring up to date the figures on the number and total income of self-employed persons given in the memorandum on the financial and economic consequences of United Kingdom membership of the European Communities, as set out in evidence to the Treasury and Civil Service Committee (HC, 57-II, page 69, Session 1984–85).
§ Mr. Norman Lamont
I regret that it has not been possible to provide an answer before the summer recess. Therefore, I shall write to the hon. Member and place a copy of the letter in the Library.
