HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 cc81-2
SIR J. LENG () Dundee

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now state what steps he has taken and proposes to take in pursuance of the intimation he gave to the House on 8th June last relative to Savings Banks.


I took steps, as I promised to do, for obtaining some fresh information on this subject during the recess, especially with regard to the system adopted in France, and I have a measure in course of preparation based on the result of those inquiries; but I cannot yet say when I may be able to introduce it.
