asked the Minister of Health if he can see his way to grant a full public inquiry into the financial position of the Aberdare District Council; and if he will instruct the district auditor to inquire into the allegations that Hirwain School huts cost £R.rno and are worth £200 only, that Abercwmbri School huts proposed cost is £4,000 and arc worth £150, and that a wall, 150 feet long, 6 feet in height, by 21 inches wide, cost £400 and is only worth £100?

As I stated in reply to a question by the hon. Member on Wednesday last, the inquiry can best be made by the district auditor at the forthcoming audit. The audit will be a public one, and the auditor has full power to investigate all the matters referred to by the hon. Member and to take such action as may be necessary.
