asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the amount of the sterling balances standing to the credit of the Reserve Bank of Rhodesia on 15th October, 1964, 11th November, 1965, 3rd December, 1965, and at the most recent date for which figures are available.

It is for the Board of the Reserve Bank of Rhodesia to determine whether to publish these figures. I am informed by the Governor, Sir Sydney Caine, that they do not at present propose to do so. It has not been the practice in the past to publish separately the figures for sterling balances, which form no more than a part of the total external assets of the Reserve Bank.
