§ Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the recent rise in the value of Government stocks has been accompanied by and is a sign of the fall in the cost of living whereby the purchasing power of holders of such stocks is doubly increased; and if he will invite large holders of Government stocks to voluntarily convert their stocks into stocks bearing a lower rate of interest?
§ Sir R. HORNE
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on the 14th March to the hon. Member for the Govan Division of Glasgow (Mr. Maclean).
