§ 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.
