§ MR. LOUGH (Islington, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether an inquiry has been held by the Local Government Board at Hendon, to consider the application from the District Council for a loan to carry out the electric lighting of the district; and, if so, can he state what is the result of the inquiry, and whether the loan has been sanctioned.
§ MR. GRANT LAWSON
An inquiry has been held with regard to the application referred to in the Question. Since it took place, representations have been made to the Local Government Board that a satisfactory scheme could be carried out at a less cost than that proposed. The Board sent these representations to the District Council, whose observations in reply were received yesterday. A decision on the application will be very shortly arrived at.
