§ 73. Mr. WRIGHT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is now in a position to make a statement as to the removal of the embargo upon loans to county councils for the purpose of purchasing land for small holdings for occupation by discharged sailors and soldiers and other suitable persons?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
This matter is under consideration, and I fear that I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
§ Colonel Sir H. GREENWOOD
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that up to the present, after four years of War, there are over 600,000 discharged sailors and soldiers and fewer than thirty have yet been settled on the land?
§ Major HUNT
Does the right hon. Gentleman know that the discharged soldier who has been an agriculturist cannot get a holding whatever he does, and what is going to be done about it?
