HC Deb 29 April 1952 vol 499 c69W
83. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the estimated capital movements during 1952 to date; and how far have they affected the improvement in the sterling area gold and dollar accounts.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am not sure what my hon. Friend has in mind. I assume he is referring to the benefit to our receipts in March, which I mentioned in my statement of the 4th April, resulting from a revival of confidence in sterling. It is impossible to measure the effect of such movements, and I cannot add to what I said then.
