§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Major Elliot)
In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Ilkeston (Mr. G. Oliver) on the 22nd September. As regards the second part, there is no official record of such deposits. As regards the third part, while no official figures are available, there are well-known unofficial estimates such as those in the "Economist" of the 22nd August, 1931.
