§ 84. Mr. HARMSWORTH
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will give figures showing the number of insolvencies among farmers for each year since 1922?
§ Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
I have been asked to reply. The failures of farmers under the Bankruptcy and Deeds of Arrangement Acts in 1922, 1923 and the first half of 1924 were, respectively, 403, 472 and 213.
§ Mr. BLUNDELL
Did any of these bankruptcies arise out of the competition of the Co-operative Wholesale Society?
