HC Deb 24 February 1956 vol 549 c76W
Mr. de Freitas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what reply he has sent to the letter of 7th February from Mr. H. G. Brooke, of Lincoln, complaining that half his small capital invested in National Savings has been swept away by inflation, and asking that future issues of National Savings Certificates, Defence Bonds, etc., should be linked with an undertaking whereby they will be repaid in terms of purchasing power rather than in mere money value.

Mr. H. Macmillan

A reply was sent to Mr. H. G. Brooke on 9th February, saying that I would take note of his representations.
