HC Deb 30 April 1968 vol 763 c166W
74. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that the limit of the United Kingdom's ability to borrow abroad has now been reached; what representations he has received from foreign central banks on this matter; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Our policies are aimed at a net surplus in the balance of payments which would enable us not only to avoid the need for any further borrowing but to repay our outstanding debts. I have not received any representations of this sort from foreign central banks, for whose co-operation and support I am grateful.
