59. Lieut.-Colonel SPENDER CLAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the advisability of soiling all shares in the Anglo-Persian Oil Company now held by His Majesty's Government, in view of the considerable profit which is obtainable, and seeing that such a sale would remove a possible source of friction and suspicion between rival interests and at the same time prove of benefit to the taxpayer?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Will the right hon. Gentleman see that there is no sale of shares which imperils our voting control over the company?
