MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, if he will 435 issue to Members as a Parliamentary Paper the recently published report regarding the possibility of introducing land and agricultural banks into the Madras presidency?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Baling
The report on agricultural banks in India is not complete, Volume I. only has come home, and the report has not yet been considered by the Governments in India or by the Secretary of State in Council. It would, therefore, be premature to lay a part of the report on the Table; but a copy of Volume I. has been placed in the library of the House, and ten more copies of that volume could be made available for hon. Members interested in the subject. I shall be happy to supply a copy to the hon. Member.
