HC Deb 31 July 1931 vol 255 c2621

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the gold delegation of the League of Nations has considered the problems arising from the use of gold for political purposes by certain States; and what steps it is proposed to take in the matter?

1. The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence)

The Gold Delegation of the League of Nations are, I understand, meeting again next month with a view to considering their final Report on the whole subject of gold movements. I must not be taken to accept the hon. Member's implication that these movements are directed for political purposes, nor does my right hon. Friend feel called upon to take any action in the matter.
