HC Deb 11 February 1930 vol 235 cc255-6W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what difficulties are being placed in the way of the Government formulating an agricultural credits scheme for Scotland; by whom are those difficulties being raised; and what action is being taken to remove the difficulties?


As I explained in answer to a question by the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R. Hamilton) on 28th January, the difficulties which have arisen are due to failure to obtain a sufficient measure of support from the Scottish banks in raising the capital necessary for the formation of a company under the Scottish Act. It is not easy to find a way out of these difficulties, but the question is being actively explored.
