HC Deb 28 February 1910 vol 14 cc560-1

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?


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.
