HC Deb 31 October 1975 vol 898 cc639-40W
Mr. Cant

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will introduce a Bill to enact a single law relating to banking supervision and control to replace the following existing legislation: Exchange Control Act 1947 (foreign exchange), Companies Act 1948 (hidden reserves), Protection of Depositors Act 1963

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I regret that the information on which to base an estimate is not available, but the cost of such relief would be substantial.
