HC Deb 28 March 1977 vol 929 c19W
Mr. Gould

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what use is being made of the 50 pence payments being sent to him by individual citizens as their contribution to the establishment of a common fund for commodities.

Mr. Meacher

The contributions are being returned where possible, with a letter explaining that it is too early to say on what basis a common fund might be established, or what its financial needs might be.
