That's true - I believe some people are waiting until the account is
open before submitting their applications so they don't have cheques
floating around for weeks (whereas I just haven't got around to
filling out the form yet!). There would need to be time for them to
apply. I guess that means an early February AGM at the earliest unless
the bank gets back to you in the next week or so.
