HC Deb 22 June 1943 vol 390 c1012
70. Sir Hugh O'Neill

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the new regulations about the cashing of Scottish banknotes in England will apply to Northern Ireland banknotes?

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Assheton)

I am glad to announce that the clearing Banks have agreed to extend to banknotes issued in Northern Ireland the arrangements now applying to Scottish banknotes and to make no charge on the acceptance of Northern Ireland banknotes at any of their branches.

Sir H. O'Neill

While I thank my hon. Friend for his reply, can he also say whether this arrangement will apply in respect of both Scottish and Northern Ireland cheques?

Mr. Assheton

I should like to have notice of that Question.
