HC Deb 25 March 1913 vol 50 c1468
31. Mr. LEACH

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if he has any information which he can give to this House showing the number of co-operative credit societies which have been formed among small landholders in the United Kingdom?


The complete figures for last year are not yet available, but I believe that there are at present over forty-five co-operative credit societies among small holders in England and Wales. I shall be glad to give more precise figures later on.


Will the right hon. Gentleman find it convenient to bring up to date the Returns issued to me some three or four years ago as supplementary to the Return now asked for?


I will refresh my memory as to the Return, and if it can be brought up to date I shall be glad to do it.
