THE HISTORY OF THE SEPARATION OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND.
By Sir R. H. INGLIS PALGRAVE, F. R. S.
HISTORY OF THE SEPARATION. The separation of the issue department from the banking department of the Bank of England was carried into effect so many years since (it dates from the passing of the bank act by Sir Robert Peel, in the year 1844) that hardly anyone now living can remember the time before the change was made, when the accounts did not appear as they do at present. The form of statement now published weekly appears probably to many of those who study it as the plan on which the statement of a note-issuing bank would naturally be drawn up, and they are hardly aware that the Bank of England is practically the only bank that follows or ever has followed this method of keeping its accounts. Before the year 1844 the accounts of the Bank of England were drawn up on the form followed at the present time by the Bank of France, the Bank of Germany, the Bank of the Netherlands, the Bank of Belgium, and, indeed, by all the other great issuing banks of the world. I add, to make this point clear, the balance sheet of the Bank of England—both according to the ordinary weekly statement and arranged to correspond with the forms employed by the other banks—and the balance sheets of the banks of France, of Germany, of the Netherlands, and of Bel
gium. The return of the Bank of England is of January 6, 1910. The dates of the balance sheets of the other banks are stated on them. The weekly publications of these banks do not give all the details required. Hence I have thought it well to give the annual balance sheets of these banks. No other statement than the weekly returns is published by the Bank of England.
