§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The total bankruptcies for the first nine months of the years 1930, 1929 and 1928 were 3,086, 2,912 and 3,188, respectively. By far the greater number of these might be called commercial bankruptcies. To extract the totals of the losses involved for the nine months' periods would require an amount of labour which hardly seems justified. The total losses for the whole years 1929 and 1928 as estimated by the debtors were £6,436,000 and £6,191,000, respectively.
