§ 72. Mr. Stokes
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much gold has been purchased on behalf of His Majesty's Government through the Exchange Control Fund since 1st April, 1940, or other near date.
§ Mr. Stokes
As this matter has much bearing on the Debate now in progress in the House, may I ask my hon. Friend whether I would be grossly in error in supposing it is of the order of £400,000,000 sterling?
