HC Deb 16 June 1921 vol 143 c637W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the failure of the Scottish Co-operative Bank, Limited; whether, although the sum involved was not large, the sufferers are, as usual, the small class of investors; whether the Government still intends to introduce its promised measure to deal with the better supervision of this type of bank; and when, in that case, the Bill will be laid before the House?


In reply to the first part of the question, as this company is registered in Scotland, no information as to the investors interested in it is available in London, but I am making inquiries. In reply to the second part, I cannot add anything to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 25th April.
