HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 c15W
Sir W. Robson-Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to empower him to require information from the joint stocks banks of unclaimed bank deposits at present lying at their disposal and enabling him to require that any deposits unclaimed after a certain period should be placed to the Exchequer Account.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I can see no need or justification for legislation on these lines.
