Say you have £10k in your current account and make a debit card payment for £1k such that your available balance immediately drops to £9k but you overall balance remains at £10k for the next 2 days until the card payment clears. For these 2 days do you earn interest on the full £10k or only on the available balance of £9k? (I think it is the former but wanted to clarify.)
