HC Deb 25 March 1913 vol 50 c1471
39. Mr. FIELD

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the House of Representatives' Money Trust Committee has declared on 28th February, 1913, that a money trust does exist and that its powers should be curbed by stringent federal regulations applying to national banks, clearing houses, and stock exchanges; and whether, considering the power wielded by this financial organisation over all other bourses and banking, he will cause official inquiries to be made at Washington, and lay full particulars of the finding by this committee upon the Table for the benefit of the House?


I have seen Press summaries of the Report to which my hon. Friend refers. When the full Report is received I will consider whether any useful purpose would be served by adopting the course suggested.
