HC Deb 26 January 1978 vol 942 c684W
Mr. Wrigglesworth

asked the Lord President of the Council when his office's banking business was last put out to competitive tender.

Mr. Foot

My Department's banker is in effect the Paymaster General, but cash is drawn from a local bank for the payment of staff wages and minor administrative expenses. In view of the modest cost of this facility no purpose would be served by opening it to competitive tender.
