HC Deb 30 October 1930 vol 244 c195
43. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of Floating Debt outstanding at the end of March, 1930, and at the end of September, 1930.

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)

As the answer contains a number of figures I will, with the hon. Member's permission circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The Floating Debt amounted on the 31st March, 1930, to £637,415,000 and on the 30th September, 1930, to £690,065,000. The increase is of course seasonal. The corresponding figures for the previous year were:

31st March, 1929 737,345,000
30th September, 1929 813,846,000
