§ Mr. MYERS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amounts subscribed to each of the various war loans at home and abroad, respectively, the issue price of such loans, the dates of issue of such loans, and the date on which in each case interest became payable, the amount of each loan transferred to subsequent loans, the amount of each loan now outstanding, the total amount of war saving certificates purchased, and the amount now in the hands of the public?
Owing to the numerous conversions from one loan into another, and possible subsequently into a third or even a fourth, figures in the form asked for by the hon. Member are not readily available. Much of the information will, however, be found in the Annual Finance Accounts and in the National Debt Returns, particularly on page 16 of Command Paper No. 1438 recently issued, which gives the figures as on 31st March last.
