HC Deb 01 April 1952 vol 498 c109W
69. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further economic information he proposes to make available before the Second Reading of the Finance Bill.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The half-yearly Command paper on the balance of payments of the United Kingdom will be presented to Parliament on 7th April, and on the same day I expect to make a brief statement about the sterling area gold and dollar position as at the end of the first quarter of the year.
