§ Mr. Goodhew
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consultations he has had with representatives of the Committee of London Clearing Bankers, concerning the possibility of amending the Bills of Exchange Act 1882, so as to make Saturday a non-business day for banks.
§ Mr. MacDermot
The Committee has consulted my right hon. Friend, but there are a number of points to be considered before a decision on Saturday closing can be taken.
