HC Deb 17 May 1956 vol 552 c2195
26. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will arrange for regular returns of applications granted or refused to be made by the Capital Issues Committee.

Sir E. Boyle

I will consider this suggestion, but I doubt whether there is enough general interest in such returns to justify their publication.

Mr. Grimond

Surely this Committee, which has had its terms of reference widened, should make some report to Parliament, which is ultimately responsible for what it does?

Sir E. Boyle

I can only repeat that my right hon. Friend has not closed his mind to the suggestion, and I shall, of course, convey to him the view which the hon. Member has expressed.
