HC Deb 05 June 1924 vol 174 cc1491-2W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the introduction of the postal-cheque system in connection with the Post Office Savings Banks?


This question has often been considered, and it has always been held that there is no considerable scope for a postal-cheque system in this country, especially in view of the wide extent of the banking system and the general use of bank cheques and postal orders for remittance purposes. I see no reason for coming to a different conclusion.
