HC Deb 06 February 1968 vol 758 c75W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that a reduction in the Bank Rate from 6 per cent. to 2 per cent. greatly assisted the recovery from the 1931 economic crisis, if he will now reduce drastically the Bank Rate from 8 per cent. and so encourage faster industrial expansion.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I can say nothing about future changes in Bank Rate.
