asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much he estimates it would cost to repay the post-war credits to the estates of those who, but for previous death, would have reached the age for payment in the current financial year.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
£2 million. If those who would have reached the age for payment in previous years are included, the cost would be £15 million.
§ 58. Wing Commander Bullus
