HC Deb 25 October 1956 vol 558 c67W
58. Mr. Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the increasing hardship imposed on people buying houses through building societies as a result of repeated increases in rates of interest ; and if he will introduce legislation to control these rates and thus alleviate such hardship.

Sir E. Boyle

No. My right hon. Friend cannot ask the House to insulate any particular class of borrower from the effects of monetary policy.
