HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 cc241-2W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give forecasts for a number of years ahead for the capital requirements of the nationalised industries.

Mr. Diamond

A forecast for 1968–69 is published in the National Loans Fund White Paper. I am considering whether it would be possible to publish figures for investment in later years. I cannot undertake to provide any forecast of the manner in which these capital requirements will be financed.
