HC Deb 13 April 1948 vol 449 c58W
Major Bruce

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give a list of the concerns, classified according to the principal industries, trades and vocations to which they belong, to whom credit facilities have been granted by the Finance Corporation for industry during the period 1st August, 1945, to 25th February, 1948; and whether he will show the total amount of the credit provided in each case.

Sir S. Cripps

It is for the Board of the Corporation to disclose such information as they may consider proper, and I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the published reports and accounts and Chairman's speeches made at the annual meetings. Up to date information will no doubt be available for the next meeting, which is due in a few months. The Corporation's transactions are, of course, subject to Capital Issues Control and are, therefore, included in the figures given to my hon. and gallant Friend on 10th March last.
