HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 cc126-7W
137. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the estimated increases in savings for the years 1951 and 1958, respectively, of building societies, National Savings, provident societies, bank deposits and life assurance.

Mr. Erroll

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Blue Book "National Income and Expenditure, 1958", which gives figures for National Savings, Building Societies, life assurance and bank deposits in each year from 1951 to 1957, the latest year for which figures are available. The figures for industrial and provident societies, which are not given in the Blue Book, are: a fall of £9 million in 1951 and a rise of £20 million in 1957.
