§ 26. Mr. Grimond
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of new issues authorised by the Capital Issues Committee for Investment Trusts; and how many requests by trusts have been refused.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Since the 29th July, 1953, the total amount authorised for Investment Trusts (including Unit Trusts) up to the 11th December has been £16,863,761. No request has been refused.
§ Mr. Grimond
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how much of the amount authorised in new issues is a bonus issue of shares?
