§ 27. Mr. EDWARD WILLIAMS
(for Mr. McENTEE) asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he has any information as to the amount of money invested in building societies of which the dividends are free of Income Tax and the number of holdings less than £500?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The only official information available regarding investment in building societies is that published by the Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies in his annual reports, and I would refer the hon. Member in particular to the report of the 4th May, 1933, Part 5 Building Societies, Section II, General Summary.
