§ Order for Third Reading read.
§ SIR HENRY WILLOUGHBY
said an impression prevailed that the Bill would require a change in the rules of 600 savings banks. Each savings bank paid a fee of £1 1s. on any change in its laws, so that the Bill would, it was feared, impose a heavy charge upon these institutions.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, he should be surprised to find that any charge upon savings banks could grow out of this Bill. He had never heard of the matter mentioned by the hon. Baronet, and he had some difficulty in supposing that there could be any ground for his apprehension.
§ Bill read 3o, and passed.
