HC Deb 19 March 1891 vol 351 c1426

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will allow other London Joint Stock Banks to tender for the business of Her Majesty's Government as well as the Bank of England?


If there were other Joint Stock Banks with capitals of £16,000,000 sterling, and if the Bank of England were unreasonable, the question of competition might arise, but I do not believe in the double event.
