HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc60-1W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the appointment, in the near future, of a representative committee to inquire into the financial policy of the country?


If my hon. Friend refers to the maintenance of the gold standard, I have no intention of calling it in question. But if he is asking me to consider an inquiry into possible im- provements in our existing system of banking and credit, I may say that this matter is under consideration, though I am not at the moment in a position to make a statement upon it.
