New Clause. — (Grants in aid of contributions.)

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill. – in the House of Commons on 12th February 1941.

Alert me about debates like this

  1. (1) Subject to the provisions of subsection (2) of this section, all contributions made by a local authority by virtue of the provisions of Part I or Part II of this Act shall, if such contributions relate either to land or to goods within the meaning of section forty-three of this Act acquired and held by the authority for any purpose in respect of which grants are payable out of moneys provided by Parliament, be deemed to be approved expenditure for that purpose, and grants out of moneys provided by Parliament shall be calculated and paid accordingly.
  2. (2) This section shall not only apply to contributions made in respect of highways maintainable at the public expense.—[Sir J. Lamb.]

Brought up, and read the First time.

I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

The present custom, I understand, is that insurance premiums which are contracted with regard to grant-aided services by local authorities are allowed to rank for grant. I want to know whether that custom will be continued.

I can give my hon. Friend the necessary assurance.

Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.
