§ 30. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider publishing as a White Paper such information as is available relating to the provisions which are made by private financial houses for the re-equipment of industry in this country on long-term credits?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
As I have already informed the hon. and gallant Member, I have a certain amount of information on this subject, but it is not sufficiently comprehensive to enable me to adopt his sug- 193 gestion. The subject is one which, I understand, falls within the terms of reference of the Committee under the Chairmanship of Lord Macmillan which is now considering the relationship between finance and industry, and I would suggest that the hon. and gallant Member await the publication of the report of that Committee.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
Subject to correction, I think other Members of the Government have indicated that it is expected comparatively soon. The precise date I could not say.
