HC Deb 20 January 1953 vol 510 c2W
Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what capital expenditure has been approved in the current financial year for each of the nationalised industries and the General Post Office.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The figure for the G.P.O. are given in the Estimates. On the subject of the nationalised industries, I see no reason to depart from the practice, followed since 1951, of not publishing these figures.
