§ 77. Colonel DAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the amount of gold in this country and in other first-class nations; and, if so. can he state the amount in coin and in bullion?
The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Guinness)
With the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement giving the information, as far as it can be derived from the published particulars. I regret that it is not possible to distinguish coin from bullion.
§ Following is the statement:
|GOLD IN THE UNDERMENTIONED COUNTRIES AT THE END OF FEBRUARY, 1925.|
|Bank of England||126,800,000|
|Currency Note Reserve||27,000,000|
