HC Deb 31 July 1912 vol 41 c2027
13. Mr. BECK

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will state the number of those whose names appear in the books of the Bank of England as holding Consols and Government Stock in the years 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901, and 1911, respectively?


Regard being had, inter alia, to the very great labour involved, I do not see my way to ask the Bank of England to undertake the investigation suggested by my hon. Friend.
