HC Deb 15 November 1966 vol 736 c228
Mr. J. B. Godber (Grantham)

With your permission, Speaker, I wish to make a personal statement.

When speaking in the debate on agriculture, on 3rd November, I referred—my remarks are reported in column 675 of the OFFICIAL REPORT—to an article in the Farmer and Stockbreeder of 27th September and, when quoting from that article, I attributed to a spokesman of the Bank of England certain comments, some of which, in fact, originated from a spokesman of Banking Information Service, which represent the views of the clearing banks.

I wish to apologise to the House and to those concerned for having inadvertently given an incorrect attribution.
