HC Deb 13 December 1945 vol 417 c625
73. Mr. Lipson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the fact that Government Departments will be closed on Christmas Eve, he will authorise the closing of banks on that day.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

No, Sir. My right hon. Friend agrees with the proposal of the banks that they should remain open until 12 noon to meet the needs of those working on Christmas Eve.
