THE MANCHESTER GUARDIAN, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1951 9 DISTRICT BANRW GOLD PAYMENT TO EUROPE Commonwealth Deficits FROM OUR FINANCIAL EDITOR London, Wednesday. ! payment of 12.821,071 has :l made to the European Pay-"nion in part settlement of .-;.ng payments deficit in 2 at. Lcmaow cates issued by Japanese banks for exchange control purposes. These suggest that exports in August and September were no higher than in June and July but were still nearly double the rate for 1950. TI , iiic seasonal irenrt in imnr-t ; During that month the especially marked in imports from the nrinm hnrl o nor rlofi.t ir i Sterling area Which snrmliae r-io Kingdom had a net deficit in . .ns with members of the ...i Union amounting to 84 In addition, member- - used 5,000,000 of existing . resources. Apart from the ment the debt was settled by :Yom the Union to the British :r-.c-nt of 76,300,000. ''in'.vd Kingdom now owes the ..'7 Millions. The adverse trend, : ;.ti in May and has been ;, derating, innot continue ..:,.;i-r without exhausting the , : ities in the Union. There are .ions for hoping that the :.i-i-n passed. The import cuts ..ive some effect soon, as the : T::i'ie seems to have compelled . iiiH-el outstanding orders on :.. :it. Experts in Paris suggest a third of the October .... he due to the 'Vflight from If the new Government, :'. -reri like a iamb, starts before : ,r Hkc a lion, confidence mav : speculation against sterling iritis believed that more than Ori-iljcr deficit with Europe i i-ount of the overseas sterling may be natural enough that :;i:nions should order on the r.' what they cannot get here : heavy deficit which they have developed with Western iiiiht to be quite temporary, r ' .l countries have now small f s'criinp raw materials and are 'i Imy again. i' City the feeling grows that .: hi'i's Government has lost round. One psychological for reversing the drift of ("airs has been missed. Few arley in the spring before the Japanese harvest is ready. But the fa in imports in the last three months seems unusually heavy. In the first half of this year imports were running at twice the 1950 rate. Again, figures of trade are not available since July, but the value of import licences granted in August and September was very much less than half the rate for the earlier months of this year. Part of the explanation may be that rumOUr.S that clerlinn ,r.,,)A !, , - . nuuiu UC . .. - ...... v... gci """'" swept japan in September, : ut llar on creaioie rumours of some uiueis ior sterling area eoods may ' "'I"Ke,,K!nl or asseis. in Japanese LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE Markets Mostly Erratic Wednesday. Continued uncertainty marked the start ot dealings for settlement on December 4 and similar conditions ruled in the Consols market where a weak start was followed by professional buying, with actual investment too slight to afford a factor of gilt-edged business. However, Japanese bonds were in sustained demand and Peru National 6 per cent I68i at one time reached 69. There were just over 8,160 markings, the smallest to start a fresh account since the Egyptian situation became an adverse factor a week before the general election. At first higher quotations for the more important Industrial equities suggested professional overselling during the recent account. For example, up to 50s 6d was given for Imperial Chemical. Selling " for cash " then became conspicuous and showed the extent of the vulnerable speculative position mentioned here yesterday. Buyers gave up to 91s 10Jd for Marks and Spencer, which fell 3s 6d yesterdav. British Celanese were quoted ex rights to the issue of new shares on which there was eventually a premium of 2s 6d. The three serial funding stocks issued to fund part of the floating debt were ail quoted but business at 100 1-32 in the 1954 stock onlr was recorded. Political factors are becoming increasingly important in the Consols market, where uncertainty invariably disturbs the market. A 3 per cent bank rate to-morrow is not now expected. In dollar stocks Chrvsler (S1481 were $4j down, but C.P.R. gained a half- have been DostDoneri Thic u-m,i explain why Japan's sterling balances nave already risen faster than was expected when the Anglo-Japanese payments agreement was signed two months ago. This rise is now expected to continue, and at the end of this year Japan may have three times as much sterling as she had in December, 1950. But the heavier payments for sterling imports are resumed in the spring, and it should oe noted that these balances represent Japans total sterling assets The com-1 3'Ut Cnn mercial banks have nr. ctDT-!;,. i Consols. It is the policy of the Japanese Government to accumulate reserves as they are still small compared to Japan's II? . 1 there is no reason to suppose that this will be done by a deliberate policy of reducing imports, and it seems probable that exports will expand again in the future. NEW ZEALAND WOOL SCHEME It seems likely that the New Zealand wool price scheme will be accepted by the Dominion Parliament. It has 1 already been accepted by the wool ! gruws.'1-s.
