HC Deb 23 July 1940 vol 363 c627W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to take any action with regard to unclaimed balances which for years have been in the keeping of British banks?

Captain Crookshank

No, Sir. The amount of such balances is not large, and the process of taking them into the Exchequer would be costly and complicated.
