§ 35. Commander MARSDEN (for Mr. HAMMERSLEY)
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can inform the House on the progress of the conversion operation?
§ Major ELLIOT
No one can doubt that the reception of the scheme has been favourable in the extreme. It thoroughly justifies all that my right hon. Friend said about the mood of the country and its readiness for great enterprises. The progress made to date is no less satisfactory. In the nature of things it is too early to measure it statistically. But the post bag up to date exceeds our most sanguine expectations.
