HC Deb 24 November 1926 vol 200 cc385-6
23. Sir B. FALLE

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how much money has accrued to date from unclaimed bank balances in the Dockyard and Naval Savings Banks?


The unclaimed balances in the Naval Savings Bank on the 31st March last, (the latest date for which figures are available) amounted to £33,537 19s. 5d., of which £23,565 15s. 5d. was deposited by men who subsequently deserted and who may at any time reclaim their deposits. The amount is subject to continual fluctuation owing to the additions to these balances and the applications for payment that are constantly occurring. Over £6,000 has been paid out in settlement during the last two years.
