§ 24. Mr. Hendry
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the commission of ls. 3d. per cent. paid to 26W banks, particularly savings banks, and others on the sale of defence bonds is inadequate to cover the cost of the work entailed; and if he will increase this and similar commissions to more realistic rates.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
The commission paid for the issue of defence bonds is in line with that for comparable Government market stocks.
