HC Deb 16 July 1936 vol 314 c2232
60. Mr. CARY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in issuing any future loan or series of loans for the purpose of financing programmes of defence, the small investor or persons with small savings will be given every opportunity to subscribe should they so desire; and whether the terms of any prospectus which may be issued will aim at securing as large a number of stockholders of small amounts rather than large block holdings?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

The question referred to by my hon. Friend does not at present arise, but his suggestion has been noted.


If it comes to the issue of a loan, will my right hon. Friend consider—


That is a hypothetical question.
