HC Deb 19 February 1952 vol 496 cc3-4W
51. Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider raising the permitted maximum holding of the current issue of National Savings certificates.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The current issue of National Savings certificates was only introduced a year ago; and there are many other facilities available for small savings. There would not seem to be, therefore, any immediate need to increase the present limit of £375. But this is a question which, of course, I bring under review from time to time in the light of the progress of the savings campaign.
