HC Deb 25 June 1968 vol 767 c42W
46. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by how much the internal purchasing price of the £1 sterling has fallen in the six months since devaluation in November, 1967.

Mr. Harold Lever

Taking the internal purchasing power of the £ as 20s. in November, 1967, its value in May 1968 is estimated at 19s. 3d. This estimate is based on movements in the index of retail prices.
