HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc209-10W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the purchasing power of the pound, taking the year 1900 as 100, for 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940, 1945, and at the latest available date; and the figures calculated over the whole field of public expenditure if the cost-of-living subsidies were disregarded.

Mr. Jay

There is nothing to add to the statement which I made in reply to the hon. Baronet's Question of 24th June last.
