§ 64. Mr. Tinker
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the importance to our war effort of proper control of monetary policy, and of the public anxiety in this respect, he will make a full statement of the existing relations between the Government and the Bank of England?
§ The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Kingsley Wood)
While fully agreeing on the importance to our war effort of proper control of monetary policy, I am not aware of any prevalent public anxiety 341 in this respect. There is, as has frequently been stated in this House, very close and constant co-operation between the Bank of England and myself.
§ Mr. Tinker
With the object of getting this information, I beg to give notice that I shall raise this matter on the Adjournment at the first opportunity.
