HC Deb 09 February 1922 vol 150 cc277-8
50. Captain FOXCROFT

asked the Prime Minister whether the liabilities of the Imperial Government to investors, whether in War Bonds or otherwise, and depositors in the Post Office Savings Bank in Southern Ireland are to be transferred to the Provisional Government?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Sir Robert Horne)

The liability of the Imperial Government to investors in Imperial Securities is not affected by the setting up of the Provisional Government. When the time comes for the transfer of the Post Office Savings Bank, existing depositors will be asked whether they wish to transfer to the Irish Savings Bank or not.
