HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c30
73. Mr. Bossom

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the financial burden that would have to be borne by the British taxpayers to enable the Government to purchase the stock of the Bank of England.

Mr. Dalton

Perhaps the hon. Member will study the Bank of England Bill, copies of which will be available in the Vote Office to-morrow afternoon.

Mr. Bossom

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what benefits will be gained by the public over the present system?

Mr. Dalton

Yes, but not to-day.
