§ 47. Sir JOHN POWER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the amount advanced on mortgage by building societies in 1928 or for the latest available year and, for comparison, the amount so advanced in the year 1924?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I have been asked to reply to this question. The Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies informs me that the amount advanced in 1927 was £55,886,903, as compared with £40,584,606 in 1924. The figures for 1928 are not yet available.
