§ 38. Mr. Alison
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to raise the rate of interest paid by the Government on funds lent to it from the Companies Liquidation Account, the Court Funds Investment Account (Deposit Accounts), and on other funds, lodgement of which with the Exchequer is obligatory and interest paid is under 5 per cent. per annum.
§ Mr. Taverne
The surplus moneys of these two Accounts are invested in authorised securities. The yield to the Accounts therefore reflects the underlying performance of their investments.
