HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c27
61. Mr. Jennings

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now able to make known the details of his policy in connection with the control of investments in view of the widespread uncertainty among investors both large and small.

Mr. Dalton

Until I introduce the Government's proposals for legislation on this subject, I cannot add anything to my reply to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Woodford (Mr. Churchill) on 23rd August last.—[Official Report, Vol. 413, cols. 836–7.]

Mr. Jennings

Is the Chancellor aware that statements of this nature are liable to do a great deal of harm if no concrete proposal is formulated so that the country can see what it is?

Mr. Dalton

I have not seen any evidence of any harm resulting so far.
