Ulster Savings were introduced by the Ministry of Finance in 1922 to raise funds for capital projects being undertaken by Local Authorities in Northern Ireland. The operation of Ulster Savings entailed the sale of certificates to members of the public, the principal and interest on which was and remains guaranteed by the UK Treasury, but charged on the Consolidated Fund of Northern Ireland.
