Orders of the Day — Rural Amenities Bill. (21 Feb 1930)

Mr James Ede: The Clause on which the hon. and gallant Gentleman questioned the right hon. Gentleman is one which very well falls within the category which I have just mentioned.

Orders of the Day — Rural Amenities Bill. (21 Feb 1930)

Mr James Ede: Those 110 are the authorities with the most rural areas under their control.
