§ MR. M'KENNA (Monmouthshire, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, whether he can hold out any hope that the law relating to the period of repayment of money borrowed by Local Authorities will be amended in the present session of Parliament.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. GRANT LAWSON,) Yorkshire, N.R., Thirsk
As my right hon. friend stated in the Debate on the Address, he is prepared to ask the House to appoint a Committee to inquire into this question. If the Committee is appointed, he must of course await its report before deciding as to any further action in the matter.
