Bank of England Bill — Confirmation hearings for Bank appointments — 22 Jan 1998
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
With this, it will be convenient to discuss the following: New clause 3-- Confirmation hearings for Bank appointments --
That school of thought must be contrasted with the views of another group:
"--economists who believe that the rapid growth of the money supply, on the broad definitions"--
But the Government have given us no idea of how serendipity and lottery will be prevented from determining the prevailing point of view of the Monetary Policy Committee.
Motion and clause, by leave, withdrawn.
Motion made, and Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:--
The House divided: Ayes 143, Noes 252.
