HC Deb 23 June 1879 vol 247 cc416-7

asked the Postmaster General, When he will be prepared to introduce his promised Bill respecting Postal Savings Banks; and, whether it is intended in such Bill to enlarge the powers of these useful Banks, especially in the direction of extending the present very limited amount allowed to stand in each depositor's name?


Sir, in the present state of Public Business, I fear I could not name any time for the introduction of this measure, and it is a measure which it is not worth while introducing unless there is a prospect of its passing into law. With regard to the second part of the Question of the hon. Member, I have to state that I have already replied to a similar interpellation in the affirmative.
