§ Mr. TOUCHE
asked the Chancellor if his attention has been called to the circumstance that the price of Two and three-quarters per Cent. Irish Land Stock has fallen to the same level as Two and a-half per Cent. Consols; and whether he has considered, or will consider, the advisability of changing some of the Post Office investments in Consols into Irish stock, so long as it can be done on an equality of capital values, or at only a small difference in price?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
The National Debt Commissioners already hold a considerable amount of Two and three-quarter per Cent. Guaranteed Land Stock and Guaranteed Two and three-quarter per Cent. Stock, and do not deem it desirable to increase the amount in the manner indicated.
