HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 c28W
Mr. Bence

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the future policy of the Government regarding the eventual repayment of postwar credits.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I gave full and sympathetic consideration to the question whether any further repayment of postwar credits could be made when I drew up my Budget proposals, but as the hon. Member will have seen, I have not been able to propose any extension of the present field of repayment this year.
