§ 33. Mr. Cary
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will rescind the monetary restrictions applied to Canada as a dollar country, so that the wife or children of any man serving in the Armed 445 Forces or industry, if evacuated overseas, can remain in possession of a part or the whole of family savings?
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Crookshank)
My right hon. Friend fears that, owing to the necessity for utilising our dollar resources for essential war needs, he cannot make the concession suggested.
Could not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman make an arrangement by which the parents could pay the money into a trust fund in this country and the Government in Canada be asked to advance the money? How would that interfere with the dollar position?
§ Captain Crookshank
That is an entirely different Question. If the hon. Lady puts it down, I will give an answer.
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that I did put it down, and that the answer given yesterday had no reference to my practical suggestion?
