HC Deb 18 June 1936 vol 313 c1191W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to prevent the speculators in the City of London indulging in such speculations as will lead to financial embarrassment for the new French Government?


As the House will remember, steps were taken in the proper quarter some time ago to limit undesirable speculation, and I have no reason to believe that the new French Government have been or will be embarrassed by operations in the City of London.
