HC Deb 08 February 1966 vol 724 c38W
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.
