54. Mr. De la Bére
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to state the approximate number of agricultural bor- 608 rowers from the clearing banks at 30th June, 1940?
§ Captain Crookshank
No, Sir. The figure desired by my hon.. Friend is not available. I hope, however, to obtain a figure of the number of borrowers for some date in August, when the amount of the bank advances to agriculturalists will be next ascertained. I will arrange to inform my hon. Friend when the figures are available.
