HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 c224W
22. Mr. Dempsey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total amount of post-war credits outstanding at the most recent convenient date; and how he expects this amount to decline in the period before the final payments are made.

Mr. Nott

It is estimated that, at the end of March, 1972, some £130 million of post-war credits had not been repaid. About £80 million will be repaid during the period ending September, 1972, and up to a further £15 million during the remainder of 1972–73. No estimate can be made at present of repayments in later years.
