HC Deb 14 June 1939 vol 348 c1315W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can give an assurance that the Government, through the Treasury, are taking steps to confer with the governors of the Bank of England, with a view to ensuring as far as possible that the resources at the disposal of the Government are sufficient to forestall a rise in interest rates, in view of the adverse economic, financial and political circumstances which at present prevail?

Captain Crookshank

The Government, in close co-operation with the Bank of England, have all such matters under continuous review.
