§ 72. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will seek legislative power by suitable amendment of the Colonial Stock Act, 1900, to refuse admission of securities to the Treasury trustee list of securities?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)
I would refer the hon. Member to the replies which I gave on this subject to the 2389 hon. Member for Farnham (Mr. A. M. Samuel) on 11th November, and to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton East (Mr. Mander) on 2nd December.
§ Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a grave anomaly exists and does he not think that some action ought to be taken?
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the admission of securities to the Treasury trustee list implies a tacit recommendation to trustees to purchase those securities?
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Has the right hon. Gentleman noticed this new anti-Imperialist policy?
