§ 61. Mr. Lipson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the work of the National Savings movement in forming savings groups is hampered because many men are afraid that such savings will be taken into account in a means test assessment after the war; and whether he will give an assurance that this will not be done?
§ Sir J. Simon
Representations have been made to me to this effect, and the possibility of increasing, in the case of new savings made out of wages during the war and lent to the Nation, the amount of capital disregarded for this purpose is under consideration.
§ Mr. Lipson
In view of the importance of this matter, can my right hon. Friend say when he will make a statement?
