HC Deb 22 February 1917 vol 90 cc1455-6
53. Mr. WATT

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the numbers of War Savings Certificates sold in England and Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, respectively, up to some recent date; will he explain why Scotland drags so far comparatively behind England and Wales in this matter; and are the same means taken by his Department to raise these funds?


I will, with the hon. Member's leave, circulate a full statement, as the answer is a long one. I may state that not only the totals for Scotland, but the proportion, has greatly improved.
