§ MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, When the Rules and Regulations under the Savings Bank Act of last Session will be laid upon the Table of this House?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
(who replied) said: The criticisms of the various Departments concerned upon the Draft Regulations for the Post Office Savings Banks prepared by the Postmaster General are now being considered by the Post Office Authorities; and on receipt of the Postmaster General's Report the Regulations can be finally settled by the Treasury. The corresponding Regulations for Trustee Savings Banks have been drafted, and will be settled to correspond with the Post Office Savings Bank Regulations when finally approved. When finally settled, the two sets of Regulations will be laid on the Table of the House simultaneously. The Annuity and Insurance and Investment Regulations have already been laid upon the Table.
§ In answer to a further Question from Mr. HOWELL,
§ MR. JACKSON
said, the Regulations would be laid on the Table as soon as the Report was received from the Post Office. There would be no delay in settling the Regulations after the Report was received.
