HC Deb 14 November 1933 vol 281 cc752-3W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the Treasury has in- formation of the hoarding of gold by private persons and firms in Great Britain; and whether it is proposed to take steps that such gold shall be delivered to the Bank of England?


I have no information which would lead me to believe that the people of this country are hoarding gold in any substantial amounts. The second part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
