HC Deb 17 March 1919 vol 113 cc1738-9
103. Mr. MacVEAGH

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now prepared to state the terms and effects of the new regulation with regard to capital issues?

The CHANCELLOR Of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

I regret, Sir, that owing to my presence having been required in Paris during the last ten days, there has been unavoidable delay in dealing with this matter, but I will make a statement as early as possible.


Will it be possible to allow the House of Commons an opportunity of seeing the Order before it is made absolute?


I am hoping to be able to communicate with the Members who show most interest in the matter and discuss it with them before the final settlement of the terms of the draft. I have been unable to do that because my presence has been required elsewhere.

Forward to
