§ Mr. RIDSDALE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the amount of 2½ per cent. Consolidated Stock which has been purchased for Sinking Fund purposes since the end of the last financial year?
§ Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE
As I stated in reply to the Noble Lord, the Member for Maidstone, on 20th instant, it is not the 629W practice to give details of the application of the Sinking Fund in anticipation of the annual Return presented to this House.
