§ MR. CHIOZZA MONEY (Paddington, N.)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to make any further statement with regard to the question of increasing the national gold reserve.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. Asquith,) Fifeshire, E.
No, Sir. I am awaiting the outcome of the deliberations of the various interests primarily concerned, and I am still not without hope that an agreement may be arrived at without intervention on my part.
