HC Deb 09 July 1903 vol 125 cc137-8

To ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state when the Report of the Committee on Agricultural banks will be laid upon the Table of the House; and will care be taken that the places where these banks have been established are indicated.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) The Papers are in the printer's hands, and will be ready in a few days. As I stated in my answer of the 2nd July, any banks which have been started are on a purely experimental footing, and the information given in the papers as to the localities where the experiment is being tried is therefore necessarily of a general character.
