§ 55. Mr. GILBERT
asked whether it is proposed to still offer for sale the 15s. 6d. War Loan Certificates at post offices; and whether, with a view to encouraging thrift, ho can see his way to allow a larger amount than £500 to be held by one person?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The £l for 15s. 6d. War Savings Certificates are still on sale at post offices, banks, etc., as before, and I sincerely trust that the stimulus given to the sale of these certificates during the War Loan campaign will result in the continuance of the excellent results then obtained. In view of the fact that neither Income Tax nor Super-tax is payable in respect of the interest earned on War Savings Certificates, I am not prepared to raise above 500 the limit for the number of certificates which may be held by or for the benefit of any one individual.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to see that the promise he has now given will be carried out in the case of anyone succeeding him in his present office?
