HC Deb 30 June 1960 vol 625 cc148-9W
Mr. Green

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Annual Report of the Bank of England for 1960 will be available.

Mr. Amory

The Bank of England informs me that the Report for the year ended 29th February, 1960, will be issued during the week ending 16th July. I understand that, in keeping with the recommendations made by the Committee on the Working of the Monetary System, the Report will be considerably fuller than in previous years. For this reason, and in order to avoid unnecessary expense, it is not proposed to republish the Report, as has formerly been the practice, in the series of Command papers. It will, however, be presented to Parliament and copies will be available to Members without charge in the usual way. Copies will also be put on sale by H.M. Stationery Office.
