§ 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.
