HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c295W
Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the need for saving and the desire by many to build and buy their own houses, he will arrange for special savings certificate issues for saving for house purchase during the present heavy restrictions on private building.

Sir S. Cripps

No. The existing issue of national savings certificates and other channels of savings available to the public provide ample facilities for saving for house purchase.
