HC Deb 26 July 1955 vol 544 c118W
107. Mr. Gaitskell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish the figures of the sterling balances each month at the same time as those of the gold and dollar reserves.

Mr. R. A. Butler

No. Even if this were practicable, I am satisfied that the figures of sterling liabilities cannot usefully be published apart from other figures in the balance of payments.
