HC Deb 23 February 1911 vol 21 c2060

asked the Chief Secretary if he could say whether any negotiations or interviews had taken place between the English and Irish Departments of Agriculture in relation to the establishment, with State assistance and supervision, of agricultural credit banks in rural districts in all parts of the United Kingdom; and whether this was a project for which support might be expected from the Government?


The question of agricultural credit has been discussed by representatives of the Departments mentioned. I am not aware that any proposals have been made as regards assistance from the State towards the establishment of Agricultural Credit Banks.
