HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c255W
Mr. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what decision he has reached regarding the proposal for setting up a Bank of Wales.

Mr. Ridley

As I informed the hon. Member for Carmarthen on 14th December exchanges between myself and the promoters of any proposed company are treated as confidential. No company has recently been registered by a name which indicates that it will carry on the business of banking in Wales.—[Vol. 808, c. 237.]
