HC Deb 27 February 1940 vol 357 cc1920-1W
Mr. Boothby

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that all undertakings producing goods for the purposes of defence or for essential civilian requirements, can obtain the credit facilities necessary to ensure maximum output without difficulty?

Sir J. Simon

Such credit facilities are, of course, matters for arrangement between the undertakings and their bankers in the light of the circumstances of individual cases; but I have no reason to suppose that the banks are not fully alive to the need for the special consideration of undertakings of the nature referred to in my hon. Friend's Question.
