asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, as he has announced the intention on the part of the Government to legislate on the subject of Joint Stock Banks, he will, in consideration of the great anxiety of those interested in those Banks, take the earliest possible opportunity of introducing the Bill, or at least of making public the main features of the proposed legislation?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, I am quite aware of the interest on this subject. I am sorry I cannot at this moment answer the hon. Gentleman's Question; but I hope to be in a position to do so next week if he will put it again.
