§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked how many village friendly societies there are still in existence in England and Wales?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The information in the office of the Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies on the subject is not in a form which enables it to be given in an answer to a question. But I shall be glad to arrange to give the hon. Member such information as is available if he will communicate privately with the Chief Registrar or myself.
