HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 cc85-6W
55. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer from what central banks in foreign countries special support for the £ sterling has been received this year; what rates of interest are being paid; what are the periods and other conditions attaching to these loans or deposits; and what is his policy about the official disclosure of the existence of such support.

Mr. du Cann

It would not be in the public interest for me to give any of the information asked for in the first three parts of the Question. On the last point I would not be prepared to commit myself to any fixed practice on this matter.
