HC Deb 19 December 1944 vol 406 c1629W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has formed an estimate of the cost of the Bills envisaged in the Gracious Speech.

Sir J. Anderson

Yes, Sir. My hon. Friend will find the usual financial memorandum prefaced to each Bill as it is published. Estimates of the cost of practically all the Measures involving major financial charges have already been given in White Papers.
