That this House notes the two official measures of inflation, the Retail Prices Index and Consumer Prices Index, and the disparity in figures between the two measures; further notes that in April 2009 one measure indicated inflation and the other indicated deflation in the British economy; further notes the confusion this caused in the broadcast media, causing the BBC to report inflation while ITN and Sky reported deflation; and believes that an urgent review of these measures of inflation should be undertaken so that a more coherent inflation index is introduced.
