HC Deb 07 April 1887 vol 313 c682
ADMIRAL MAYNE (Pembroke and Haverfordwest)

asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board, Whether the Local Government Board will take the steps necessary to afford facilities to towns and villages in the vicinity of harbours to hypothecate their local rates as security for loans to be advanced by the Public Works Loan Commissioners for harbour works?

THE SECRETARY (Mr. LONG) (Wilts, Devizes)

A Question on this subject was put to the First Lord of the Treasury on Tuesday last, and in reply he stated that the facilities referred to would probably be given by a clause in the Public Works Loan Bill.
