HC Deb 03 April 1981 vol 2 c135W
Mr. Weetch

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the recent circular about changes in the rules of the Civil Service Building Society, sent out by that society, was approved by the Registry of Friendly Societies.

Mr. Lawson

No. The Registry has no authority either to approve or to object to circulars concerning changes of rules sent by building societies to their members.
