HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 c78W
Mr. McEntee

asked the Attorney-General whether, to simplify business transactions in war time, he will arrange for the payment of county court charges by cheque instead of in cash, especially since the county court officials need not send a receipt until the cheque has been honoured?

The Attorney-General

I assume that the hon. Member does not suggest that every payment to a county court should be made by cheque. I am informed by my Noble Friend that the County Court Registrars already follow the ordinary business practice in deciding whether to accept a cheque in any particular case. If the hon. Member has in mind specific instances in which cheques have been unreasonably refused, my Noble Friend will have them investigated.
