§ Mr. Weetch
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what applications have been made since the end of February 1981 by members of building societies seeking access to the register of members under section 63 of the Building Societies Act 1962; and if he will set out in the Official Report the formal direction of the Chief Registrar on each application.
§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
Since the end of February 1981 four applications have been made by members of building societies seeking access to the register under section 63 of the Building Societies Act 1962. Three societies were involved, namely, the Kingston Building Society, the Liverpool Building Society and the Anglia Building Society. A direction was refused in the case of the474W application in respect of the Kingston Building Society, but in the other three cases directions were given. Since the decisions and directions are lengthy, I shall send copies of them to the hon. Member and further copies will be made available in the Library.
