HC Deb 23 January 1968 vol 757 c62W
41. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the true reserves, stated in terms in gold at $ 2.80 to the £on 1st January, 1968 compared with the five previous years, including the dollar portfolio and all future debt commitments.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Our future debt commitments will be met out of our future receipts. It would be misleading to attempt calculations of the kind for which the hon. Member is asking.
