HC Deb 24 February 1983 vol 37 c524W
34. Mr. Farr

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the current value of the pound sterling in world money markets.

Mr. Brittan

I refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave to the right hon. Member for Stepney and Poplar (Mr. Shore) on 18 November when he said that successive Governments made it their practice not to make statements about the level of the exchange rate.
