HC Deb 06 November 1940 vol 365 c1361W
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.
