THE EARL OF RONALDSHAY
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what was the amount of savings in the Savings Banks of Great Britain and of Germany in 1907; and what has been the increase per cent, in each case during the past ten years.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
I understand on inquiry that no official figures are available with regard to the amount deposited in Savings Banks in the German Empire, as a whole, for any later period than the end of 1904 or any earlier period than the end of 1900. I regret, therefore, that I am unable to give the information which the noble Lord desires.
