HC Deb 29 April 1930 vol 238 c26
36. Major WOOD

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement regarding the position of the fishermen's net loan and grant funds?


With the hon. and gallant Member's permission, I propose to circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:

Relief Fund.
Number of grants made 1,883
Total amount of grants 26,020

NOTE.—The rate of assistance from the Fund represents approximately 7s. 6d. for each £1 of loss sustained.

Loans Scheme.
Number of applications for loans received 425
Total amount of loans applied for 31,375
Number of loans sanctioned 141
Total amount of loans sanctioned 5,515

NOTE.—The amount of loans sanctioned represents the amount of loans applied for reduced by the grants made from the Relief Fund. The total amount of grants from the Relief Fund received by those fishermen to whom loans have been sanctioned amounted to £2,245.

The total amount granted from the Relief Fund to all applicants for loans was £6,067.
