HC Deb 06 May 1957 vol 569 c45W
76. Mr. Chapman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he makes of the likely change in stock- building in the 1957–58 financial year.

Mr. Birch:

Movements in stock-building are extremely difficult to forecast, and I do not think it would be useful to offer an estimate of the probable change in 1957–58.
