558Z. Craven-Ellis to Harrod, 17 March, 1939 [a]

Follows on from 896 , [1] continues at 559 Z. The Advisory Committee of the Parliamentary Monetary Committee, having examined the Questions suggested by Harrod and Shepherd, has decided which Questions to amend, and which to submit as drafted. Craven-Ellis thus thinks it would be best to drop No. 1, put numbers 3 and 5 as drafted, numbers 6 and 7 as drafted by Harrod (i.e., not accepting Sheperd's amendments), to put No. 2 with Sheperd's amendments, wile the supplemental to No. 2 depends upon the replies. [2]

  1. a. From 21 Portland Place, London # , TLS, 2 pages, enclosing 5 Questions on 5 pages, in HP VI-132-161/3.
  1. 1. The enclosure mentioned in the text are more numerous and numbered differently from the Questions proposed by Harrod in his letter of 12 February (not extant) and reformulated by Craven-Ellis on 17 February (letter 896 ). This suggests that some letter belonging to this exchange does not survive; Sheperd's suggested amendments are not preserved in Harrod's files.

    2. Questions 2, 3 and 5 (new numbering) were put by Craven-Ellis on 30 March: see the Official Reports, Fifth Series. Parliamentary Debates. Commons, vol. 345, pp. 2219-2220; as to the other two Questions, Numbers 6 and 7, see 559 Z].
