§ 62. Sir William Darling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider an arrangement whereby holders of post-war credits may commute their expectations for a proportionately reduced cash payment.
§ Sir W. Darling
In view of the practice of allowing Civil Service pensioners to commute, why should we not consider extending the principle to those who have post-war credits, particularly having in mind that it be a good bargain for the Treasury and a not unsatisfactory arrange-for post-war creditors?
§ Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite
Would the Minister convey to the Chancellor of the Exchequer the desirability of this matter being thoroughly reviewed before his right hon. Friend's Budget statement, owing to the great dissatisfaction in the country at the fact that the Government are not releasing these funds?
