§ MR. ARMITAGE (Leeds, Central)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board what loans have been allowed during the last two years under the Housing of the Working Class Act repayable over eighty years.
(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) The number of loans of the kind referred to in the Question is twenty-two, and they amount to the sum of £258,962. I shall be happy to give my hon. friend a list of them if he so desires. I may add that the number above stated is exclusive of several loans which comprise not only items of expenditure for which eighty years would be allowed, but also other items for which a shorter term would be granted. In such cases an equated period of less than eighty years has been fixed for the repayment of the whole loan.
