HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c405W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the explanation for the present high rate for Treasury Bills, which is 100 per cent. in excess of the rate paid in 1936.

Sir J. Anderson

The rate at which Treasury Bills are sold depends on a variety of factors, and I do not think it is possible to give a simple explanation within the limits of a Parliametary answer.
