I am aware of the Circular to which the hon. Member refers. It is made clear in the Circular that the provision for making allowances to clerks to local authorities is only applicable in special circumstances and that, ordinarily speaking, the loss on the assisted scheme account should not be increased by a payment to the clerk for work done in the execution of a statutory duty of the local authority. The housing scheme in the district in question consists of two sites, on one of which no houses have been built, and I do not consider the circumstances so exceptional as to justify the payment of special remneration at the cost of the assisted housing scheme.
