HC Deb 08 July 1969 vol 786 c1148
20. Mr. Eadie

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the result of his investigation into speculation by city banks in this country which covered the week in early May when speculation on a Deutsche mark revaluation reached its peak; and what steps he now proposes to take.

Mr. Diamond

The investigation has not yet been completed.

Mr. Eadie

Would my right hon. Friend agree that it is not enough that speculators should get their fingers burned, but that organisations and individuals should be named to let the British people know who really are stabbing them in the back?

Mr. Diamond

First, we must find out whether there were any individuals before naming them.
