§ Sir WILLIAM BULL
asked what is the total number of persons holding investments purchased through the Post Office Savings Bank; and what is the total amount of their investments?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
According to the last return taken at the end of December, 1910, the total number of stock accounts in the Government Stock Register of the Post Office Savings Bank was 165,419 and the amount of Stock standing to the credit of the Stockholders £23,151,868. As, however, holdings in different classes of Stock are treated as separate accounts, the number of stockholders would be less than the number of accounts, but I am unable to give the actual figure.
