§ 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 for242W investment in later years. I cannot undertake to provide any forecast of the manner in which these capital requirements will be financed.
