HC Deb 20 October 1942 vol 383 cc1831-2
48. Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will assure the House that no amendment, alteration or addition will be made to the Ottawa Monetary Report of August, 1932, and the British Currency Declaration of July, 1933, without first receiving the approval of Parliament?

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir. The question whether there will at any time be any modifications of the monetary and currency policy of this country is hypothetical.

Mr. Craven-Ellis

May I ask that nothing be done in this connection without the approval of the House?

Sir K. Wood

The question is still hypothetical.
