§ 24. Mr. GILLETT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any detailed information will in future be available as to the composition of the Government securities held against the note issue?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I would refer the hon. Member to Section 3 (3) of the Currency and Bank Notes Act, 1928. The Bank of England must furnish the Treasury with such information as the latter require but are expressly exempted by that Section from publishing the information.
