HC Deb 01 April 1952 vol 498 cc108-9W
68. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will, before the Second Reading of the Finance Bill, publish a White Paper on the plans agreed upon between the Governments concerned for the redress of the trade balances and general economic development of the sterling area.

Mr. R. A. Butler

A White Paper would not add anything to the statement published after the January Conference or to the full explanations which I gave in my speech in the debate on 29th January last and in my Budget Speech of 11th March.
