asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that the foreign central banks are fully informed of the true position of the United Kingdom's reserves, and their support only is necessary to maintain the sterling rate, why he declines to give the same information to the British public, whose actions could not affect materially the sterling rate one way or the other.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
I have nothing to add to what I said on this subject when discussing the Question raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, West (Mr. Dickens) on 13th May.
