HC Deb 19 November 1931 vol 259 c1037W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the need for reduction in public expenditure and of the increase in the real burden of interest payments on the National Debt following the fall in prices, whether he proposes to take any steps to effect a reduction in these interest payments commensurate with the cuts in unemployment benefit?


Measures for reducing the charge for interest on the National Debt consistent with the maintenance of public faith are constantly under consideration.
