Oral Answers to Questions — Education. – in the House of Commons on 26th February 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Health, whether he will take steps to empower local authorities to establish out of rate income reserve funds designed to meet the cost of maintenance work which has been postponed owing to the war?
I have received no representations on this matter from the associations of local authorities, and as
at present advised I do not contemplate the introduction of legislation.
Is not the underlying financial position of local authorities growing more and more unhealthy?
I should very much hesitate to accept that statement as generally true. If my hon. Friend desires to discuss any particular case that has come to his knowledge, I shall be very glad to meet him.
