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.
