HC Deb 09 July 1940 vol 362 cc1095-6W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has con- sidered the advantages of a scheme for selling war bonds on an instalment plan?

Sir K. Wood

Wide facilities already exist for the purchase by instalments of savings certificates and Defence Bonds out of regular weekly savings, and the Post Office and trustee savings banks are available for the accumulation of sums for the purchase of National War Bonds. I do not think that any additional facilities are called for in the case of those bonds, but I will keep the matter under consideration.
