HC Deb 09 February 1956 vol 548 c1791
23. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will permit the Electrical Contractors Association to form a hire-purchase finance company so as to enable their members to compete more fairly with the Central Electricity Board.

Sir E. Boyle

My right hon. Friend would not be disposed to consent to any proposal for expanding finance for hire purchase at the present time.
