HC Deb 21 May 1968 vol 765 cc56-7W
51. Sir. C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the approximate size of the nation's short-term debts; to whom mostly they are owed; and what are his proposals for funding them, and when.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Details of the United Kingdom's monetary liabilities are published in "Economic Trends"; and some further information about their distribution is given in the Bank of England's Quarterly Bulletin. On the last part of the hon. Member's Question I have nothing to add to the Answer which I gave the hon. Member for Banbury (Mr. Marten) on 14th May.—[Vol. 764, c. 1014–15.]
