§ Mr. Wickenden
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consequences may be expected to flow from the breach of the terms of issue of Government stocks and bonds where interest payments have not been made on the due dates.
§ Mr. Lawson
The stocks and bonds affected are those registered on the National Savings stock register. Investors whose dividend payments were subject to delay will be paid recompense in accordance with the terms set out in the answer to the written question from my hon. Friend the Member for Hazel Grove (Mr. Arnold) on 13 July.
