HC Deb 03 August 1965 vol 717 c264W
16. Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the net drop in national savings from £72.8 million in the first fifteen weeks of the financial year 1964–65 to £2 million in the same period in the financial year 1965–66.

Mr. MacDermot

The figures given by the hon. Member are correct. But I would point out to him that personal savings generally remain high.
