HC Deb 06 March 1969 vol 779 cc161-2W
Mr. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what further discussions he has had, and what further decisions he has reached, regarding the possible establishment of a Welsh Bank.

Mr. George Thomas

I am awaiting the report of the Welsh Council's study of the availability of private and public capital before forming any view of my own on the possible need for new financial institutions in Wales. It will not, of course, be for me to take decisions in this matter.
