asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he intends to continue the practice of publishing at the time of the Budget details of Government lending from the National Loans Fund and of the financing of nationalised industries capital requirements.

Yes. We have decided to discontinue the publication of the annual White Paper on loans from the National Loans Fund but we shall give details for the year just ending and the year ahead—that is, for 1974–75 and 197576 in the coming Budget—in a new table in the Financial Statement and Budget Report. This table will supplement the information provided in the present Table 12. Other information, referring mainly to earlier years, is available in the annual "Accounts relating to Issues from the National Loans Fund" and in the annual reports and accounts of each of the corporations concerned and will not be shown in the Financial Statement and Budget Report.
