Eight societies have failed to furnish annual returns for 1937. In five cases the registry has been cancelled. Of the other three, the registrar has given notice in two cases of his intention to cancel the registry on the ground that the society has failed to furnish the return and, in the third case, a similar notice has been given on the ground that the society has ceased to exist. In addition, two societies which have submitted insufficient returns have been prosecuted, and one similar case is outstanding. In all, nine property societies have been prosecuted for failure to render annual returns for 1937, and have since furnished returns.
