HC Deb 25 February 1918 vol 103 cc1120-1W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that, as a result of amalgamation, to transfer Ulster Bank stock held in Ireland it is necessary to have all grants resealed in England and afterwards exhibited at the London County and Westminster Bank; if stock or those holders in the latter bank wishing to transfer must similarly reseal in Ireland and exhibit script, etc., to the Ulster Bank; and has his Department any control over this tedious and expensive procedure, or will he have some more businesslike method adopted?


I am not sure that I fully understand the hon. Member's question, but in any case the procedure to which he refers is not within the control of the Board of Trade.
