Mr. Bernard Taylor:
asked the Minister of Health what is the policy of His Majesty's Government for assisting local authorities to meet the increased expenditure necessitated by air-raid damage and to offset the loss in rates; and whether this policy applies to local authorities throughout the country?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 13th May to my hon. Friend the Member for Tarn-worth (Sir J. Mellor). The policy set out in that answer applies throughout the country.
