HC Deb 14 November 1944 vol 404 c1805W
Sir R. Rankin

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, to enable industry and finance to begin to plan ahead for the conversion from war to peace-time activities and, in view of the fact that it is not possible at the present time to conduct external or internal business unless permission is obtained, he will state the future policy of the Capital Issues Committee.

Sir J. Anderson

It would be premature at present to anticipate the details of the policy to be adopted by the Government in the administration of the capital issues control after the war. The primary object of that policy, however, will be to ensure that access to the capital market conforms to the accepted priorities and to measures taken in other fields for the purpose of giving effect to those priorities.
