HC Deb 25 July 1991 vol 195 c812W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the banking companies on the Bank of England's current list of deposit takers supplied to local authorities.

Mr. Maples

The Department of the Environment wrote to local authorities on 21 June asking them to complete a routine statistical return of their borrowing and lending. Enclosed with their letter was a list of "institutions included within United Kingdom banks (at 31 December 1990)". The list was provided solely to assist completion of the statistical return. It is published annually in the Bank of England'sQuarterly Bulletin and I have placed a copy in the Library.
