HC Deb 22 June 1961 vol 642 cc165-6W
94. Mr. Leather

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will con- sider a scheme to provide Government guarantee of private capital invested in Commonwealth overseas territory similar to that operated by the United States Government.

Mr. Barber

No. Our balance of payments position rules out the adoption at present of any such scheme designed to increase the total invested abroad.
