§ MR. BANBURY (Camberwell, Peckham)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the serious frauds that have been committed by Directors of Building Societies, he will take steps to appoint a Government official to audit half-yearly the accounts of all Building Societies?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. ASQTUITH,) Fife, E.
The proposals of the Government in reference to the accounts of Building Societies are contained in the Bill which I introduced last night, and to which I beg to refer the hon. Member.
