HC Deb 17 February 1931 vol 248 cc1059-60
50. Mr. MANDER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has considered the passage in the second interim report of the Gold Delegation of the Financial Committee of the League of Nations in which it is stated that by no policy can a distribution of gold appropriate to real needs be assured when conditions are likely to be upset by sudden and violent changes in economic policy; and does he propose to take any action in the matter?


As regards the general question of the action to be taken on the Gold Delegation's report, I would refer to the reply given to the hon. Member for Southampton (Mr. Morley) on the 29th January.


Will the Chancellor of the Exchequer do his utmost to resist the return to office in this country of a party likely to bring about sudden and violent changes in policy?
