Payment deferred

Sir: Your correspondents Mervyn Benford (letter, 9 July) and MA Qavi (14 July) are fortunate indeed.

I recently paid into a building society (not yet a bank) a substantial cheque from an insurance company of good standing. With a short and, I hope, somewhat embarrassed pause, the employee dealing with it told me there would be a 10-day clearance period.
