HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c653W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in the light of subsequent events, he has any reason to modify the statement in Cmnd. 9033 on the New Cross building society that in a matter of months the society might not have been able to repay investors; if he plans to publish evidence if the statement remains justified; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Stewart

The passage to which my hon. Friend refers (paragraph 4 "New Cross building society", Cmnd. 9033) summarised fairly the conclusions which the Chief Registrar had reached in his decision on the proposed statutory orders against the New Cross Building Society (reprinted as appendix 5 to Cmnd. 9033, specifically in paragraph 15.5). Subsequent events have done nothing to cast doubts on the Chief Registrar's assessment.
