HC Deb 07 December 1939 vol 355 c828W
Mr. Mander

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether a person possessing 500 War Savings Certificates, who receives by bequest an additional amount, will be permitted to keep them?

Sir J. Simon

Yes, Sir. A person who inherits National Savings Certificates which increase his total holding of Certificates to more than 500 units may retain those in excess of the limit. He is not, however, entitled to purchase further Certificates while holding 500 units or more.
