HC Deb 05 February 1963 vol 671 cc31-2W
50. Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will transfer all those Post-War Credits that become due for repayment but are not claimed within one month into National Savings certificates in the name of the person to whom repayment is due.

Mr. Barber

I am afraid that this suggestion would be impracticable.

Mr. Proudfoot

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will release Post-War Credits to people residing in areas of high unemployment.

Mr. Barber

I do not think it would be right to adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion. A person who has been registered as unemployed for a continuous period of twenty-six weeks is entitled to claim repayment of Post-War Credits.
