60. Mr. Golding

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether Her Majesty's Government intend to seek powers to control price increases in the nationalised industries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

No. I have nothing to add to what was said in the debate on the Address on 7th July.—[Vol. 803, c. 510–11.]

61. Mr. Douglas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the discussions with the nationalised industries on their future rates of return on capital.

I have no statement to make on this subject at present. Financial objectives for those industries for which they have not yet been agreed will be announced as they are settled.
