§ Mr. Muff
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of money lent to His Majesty's Government, free of interest, by the citizens of the county borough of Bradford; the total amount to date invested from the city of Bradford; and what this represents per head of the population?
§ Sir K. Wood
The amount lent to the Government during the Bradford War Weapons Week in Saving Certificates, Defence and National War Bonds and Savings Bank Deposits was £2,507,744. In addition loans made free of interest amounted to £553,187 and gifts to £824. The total of £3,061,755 represents, on the basis of the most recent estimates of population, an amount per head of approximately £11 6s. od. I would take this opportunity of expressing my warm appreciation of this splendid result.
