HC Deb 15 March 1956 vol 550 cc56-7W
55. Mr. Beswick

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent he will remove or reduce the cuts in capital expenditure on national undertakings, in order to counteract the unemployment and under-employment in the electronics industry in south-west Middlesex.

Sir E. Boyle

In present circumstances my right hon. Friend cannot contemplate any measures to increase the capital expenditure which has been agreed.
