asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has asked the Bank of England to make special arrangements to permit the participation of small investors in the issue of £800 million of 15 per cent. Treasury stock on 22 November.
No special arrangements were required. The stock was offered to the public and all investors had the opportunity to submit tenders. Prospectuses and tender forms were distributed widely throughout the country and were advertised in the national and regional press.
