HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 cc769-70
58. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount realised from the sale of surplus war stores, both in this country and abroad, since the beginning of the present financial year.

Mr. Dalton

The total value of such disposals is £214 million, £147 million at home and £67 million abroad.

Mr. Shephard

Can the Chancellor of the Exchequer say how much he expects to raise from this source by the end of the financial year?

Mr. Dalton

I think we had better wait and see; it is coming in all the time, and I should not like to risk an estimate so late in the year.
