HC Deb 16 June 1955 vol 542 cc748-9
35. Mr. Warbey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what decisions were taken at the recent Organisation for European Economic Co-operation meeting regarding the modification of the European Payments Union and preparations for the free convertibility of currencies.

Sir E. Boyle

I would ask the hon. Member to await the statement which my right hon. Friend will be making in the course of the debate.

Mr. Warbey

Pending that statement, can we have an assurance that the Government have no early intention of proceeding towards the free convertibility of sterling?

Sir E. Boyle

I advise the hon. Member to await my right hon. Friend's speech. There will be a full statement on this subject.
