HC Deb 19 March 1968 vol 761 c271

The current issue of National Savings Certificates has been an outstanding success since it was first introduced two years ago, and it continues to offer one of the best returns obtainable in the market. This year, like last, the Certificate has attracted over £60 million net and the total amount invested in National Savings Certificates is now well over £2,000 million. The high sales of the current year suggest that many people must now be reaching the limit of £750 announced in last year's Budget speech and from 22nd March I am therefore raising this to £1,000.
