§ Mr. Burstow
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations his Department has made to the Halifax Bank in relation to its policy on distributing windfall payments to disabled savers. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
[holding answer 17 June 1997]: None. The broad framework with which distribution schemes must conform is set out in the Building Societies Acts. The detailed nature of any particular scheme is for a society's board and members to determine.
