§ SIR EDGAR VINCENT (Exeter)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, if he can give the approximate amount standing to the credit of deposit accounts 445 in the Post Office Savings Bank on which no operation has taken place for more than ten years.
§ *THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
I fear I cannot give the information asked for. It could only be supplied by a detailed examination of the depositors' accounts, which number over eight millions; and I do not see that any result would be obtained which would justify the labour and expense of such an examination.
