§ 44. Captain Pilkington
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the position of the gold and dollar reserves.
§ The Economic Secretary to the Treasury (Sir Edward Boyle)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement my right hon. Friend made to the House yesterday.
§ Captain Pilkington
May I ask whether my hon. Friend can confirm that the levels of the reserves today are substantially higher than in 1951–52?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
Mr. Speaker, could we have an answer to the last supplementary question? It is a question of fact one way or the other which should be well within the knowledge of the Economic Secretary.
