§ Colonel DAY
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider increasing the rate of interest now being paid on Post Office Savings Bank deposits, with a view to encouraging small traders and others to make greater use of the facilities provided?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I am not prepared to adopt this suggestion for the reasons which the hon. and gallant Member wilt find set out in paragraph 11 of the Report of the Committee on War Loans for the Small Investor (Command Paper 8179, of 1916).
