HC Deb 18 January 1945 vol 407 c387W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will issue the necessary instructions that in future Ministerial announcements regarding the cost falling on the Exchequer he will substitute the word "taxpayer" for "Exchequer."

Sir J. Anderson

While I appreciate my hon. Friend's object, I think the point may be left to Ministerial discretion.
