§ MR. GEORGE ROBERTS (Norwich)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is prepared to make a grant from the central fund to the Croydon Distress Committee in respect of the scheme of improvements on Mitcham Common.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
I have been in communication with the Croydon Distress Committee on this subject, and as a result of representations from them I have decided to make a payment of £200 out of the Parliamentary grant towards the work on Mitcham Common.
§ MR. DOBSON (Plymouth)
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the guardians might be more effectually helped in dealing with the distress if he gave assistance for the widening of Addiscombe Road rather than for the improvement of Mitcham Common?
