53. Brigadier Mackeson

52. Wing-Commander Roland Robinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has yet received any response from the Co-operative Wholesale Society to his request that the society's bank should reduce its interest rates; and what action he is taking on this matter.

57. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the. Exchequer why the Co-operative Wholesale Society Bank is not called upon to take a quota of Treasury deposit receipts in the same way as the clearing banks; and if he will take steps to alter this practice.

Mr. Dalton

For the present, I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Blackpool, South (Wing-Commander Robinson) on 28th January.
