53. Mr. Dodds

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the part the earlier repayment of post-war credits could play in stimulating the textile industry during the period of recession due to the lack of purchasing power amongst the public; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Gateshead, West (Mr. J. Hall) on 15th May.
