HC Deb 21 November 1951 vol 494 c43W
9. Mr. Bence

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General why, at the completion of entries on one page of a Post Office Savings Bank book, the book has to be sent to London.

Mr. Gammans

This arrangement is necessary to ensure that the entries in the books agree with those in the headquarters ledgers. It also helps to reduce the risk of fraud.
