HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 c308W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether, having regard to the immense amount of gold and silver that is annually buried and lost in India, he will consider the advisability of appointing a public trustee for India who will be open to receive the savings of the population?


The savings banks and the issue of securities in a form adapted to the small investor already serve the purpose which the hon. Member appears to have in mind, but I will not lose sight of his suggestion.
