HC Deb 30 July 1946 vol 426 c162W
Sir W. Darling

asked the President of the Board of Trade what commission is paid to banks for the collection of clothing coupons; if he is satisfied that the payment is adequate; and if he has any plans for discontinuing the system.

Mr. Marquand

By agreement with the Committee of the London Clearing Bankers, banks are remunerated at the rate of one shilling per 1,000 coupons handled. I have no reason to think that this payment is not adequate. The answer to the last part of the Question is in the negative.
