HC Deb 15 March 1945 vol 409 c390
58. Major Neven-Spence

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give any information as to the extent to which the indebtedness of farmers to the banks has been reduced since 1939.

Mr. Hudson

Although I cannot give figures, I understand that there has been a substantial drop in the total balances due from farmers to the banks since 1939.
