I have no evidence of any special difficulty arising from the cause to which my hon. Friend refers, but I will look at once into any complaint which he may care to bring to my notice. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I recently gave to a Question on the subject by my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing (Sir F. Sanderson). I am sending him a copy of that reply, together with a copy of my recent circular to local authorities.
