§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir William Mitchell-Thomson)
No figures are available as to the total amount of deposits made by persons who were subscribers and have relinquished the service. At the end of December last the accumulated amount of deposits which have not been repaid owing to the impossibility of tracing the holders was £17,422.
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I have certainly tried to trace the owners where possible, but the total amount is only £75,000.
