§ 50. Mr. KING
asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered the Report of the Select Committee on Premium Bonds; whether he is aware that legislation to authorise any issue of such bonds would be strongly opposed; and whether he will announce that the Government have no present intention to introduce a Bill?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I have carefully considered the Report of the Select Committee, and, in view of the terms of that Report, the Government have decided not to proceed with an issue of Premium Bonds.
