asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the fact that he does not propose any exten- sion of the field of repayment of postwar credits this year, he will make a statement on the circumstances in which he would feel enabled to extend the field of repayment in future years; and the policy of Her Majesty's Government with regard to the eventual repayment of such credits.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This is a matter which must be considered from time to time in the light of the circumstances then existing.
