HC Deb 30 March 1943 vol 388 cc39-40W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will direct the War Savings Committee to confine their activities to small savings, as business people with surplus funds do not require any persuasion to invest their funds at 2½ per cent.?

Sir K. Wood

My hon. Friend is mistaken in supposing that there is no need to encourage subscriptions from institutions and business undertakings, and such encouragement will continue to form part of the War Savings Campaign. The primary objective of the campaign, however, is as I have often stated, to secure a greater volume of saving and lending out of income by private individuals.
