HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c102W
68. Mr. E. Wakefield

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that strict interpretation by the banks of his directives regarding restriction of credit has caused grave embarrassment to many clergymen of the Church of England, who receive their stipends quarterly in arrears; and whether he will indicate to the banks that, in dealing with such cases, some latitude should be allowed.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The application in individual cases of my request to the banks about curtailment of credit must necessarily be left to the banks themselves.
