HC Deb 15 July 1947 vol 440 c19W
47. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider asking for powers to enable him to impound or confiscate the bank balances of people found guilty of currency offences.

Mr. Dalton

I do not contemplate any change at present in tire penalties for such offences under the Exchange Control Act of this year.
