§ Sir WILLIAM BULL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state how many British-born settlers have benefited by the mortgage advances made since its start by the Transvaal and Agricultural Bank; what is the exact amount of the advances they have received; and what proportion does the gross amount of these advances bear to the aggregate disbursements?
§ MASTER of ELIBANK
According to the report of the Transvaal Land and Agricultural Bank for the year ended 30th June last a total of £1,105,568 loans had been made. No detailed information of the kind referred to is given, nor am I aware that it is in existence. Might I suggest that the hon. Member will get more information if he will apply to the Agent-General for the Transvaal.
