HC Deb 01 May 1890 vol 343 c1823

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has now considered the question of permitting Trustees to invest their Trust Funds in Colonial Government Securities; and, if so, what conclusion has he arrived at?


A Departmental Committee, as I think the House is aware, was appointed to consider how the difficulties connected with the admission of Colonial Stocks into the category of trust investments might best be surmounted, in the event of its being thought desirable to take steps to provide for their admission. The Report of the Committee has been presented to the Treasury, but I have not yet had time to consider their conclusions.
