HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 cc208-9W
40. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why he did not announce his decision to sell Her Majesty's Government's holding in the Amerada Petroleum Company to the House of Commons in accordance with his undertaking of 2nd August, 1965.

Mr. Callaghan

The hon. Member is mistaken. It is not the normal practice to inform the House of individual sales from the portfolio.
