§ MR. TULLY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Board of Works can state when they received from the Local Government Board their sanction of a loan to the Boyle No. 1 District Council for the construction of waterworks in Boyle; and can he explain the delay that has arisen in the issuing of this loan.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. ELLIOT, Durham
The delay was caused by the fact that the Rural Council did not reply till the 16th June to a letter from the Board of Works of the 18th May making inquiry on an essential point. So far as the Board of Works is concerned the case has been exceptionally hastened, having been specially submitted for Treasury sanction.
§ No answer was returned.
