§ 26. Mr. Grimond
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now arrange for an annual report by the Capital Issues Committee.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
No, Sir; but I am considering the regular publication of figures in the way suggested by the hon. Member for Essex, South-East (Mr. Braine) on 9th April.
§ Mr. Grimond
Does that include the number of applications to the Committee and the number of applications refused? Will the Chancellor include in his statement a statement of the principles on which the Committee is working?
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
The principles on which the Committee is working are stated from time to time in Questions and 1064 Answers in the House of Commons. The statement would include the number of applications which have been made.
