§ 66. Sir F. WISE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can give the percentages of the total amount of the guarantee of the various important trades of the £75,000,000 guaranteed under the Trade Facilities Act?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I will circulate the statement asked for in the form of a table in the OFFICIAL REPORT. But my hon. Friend will bear in mind that the advantages given by the Trade Facilities guarantees accrued as much or more to the 918 manufacturers of the capital equipment supplied as to the trades which raised the guaranteed loan.
§ The percentages are as follow:
|Trade.||Amount of Guarantee. £||Percentage of Total.|
|Railways Construction and Equipment:|
|Other (Generation, Distribution and Traction)||8,004,600||10.8|
|Paper and Pulp Manufacture||2,535,000||3.4|
|Dock Extensions, Quays and additional Harbour Facilities||3,375,345||4.5|
|Sugar Beet Factories||2,420,000||3.2|
|Iron, Steel and Engineering||1,161,050||1.6|
