§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state how many accounts remain unclaimed for 10 years in the seamen's savings banks, and the amount so unclaimed?
§ MR. MUNDELLA
It is more convenient to give the information as to these accounts for the last 13 years. The number of accounts in the Seamen's Savings Banks which have not been operated on for 13 years is 537. The total amount of balances with interest to 20th November last is £11,866 6s. 9d.
