HC Deb 08 April 1952 vol 498 cc201-2W
64. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of private saving this year.

Mr. R. A. Butler

In the course of my Budget speech I made it clear that I was not counting on any great increase in personal saving in the coming year. I do not think it necessary or wise at this stage to attempt to give any more precise estimate of the course of personal or other private saving.
