HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 c1632
MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether his Board has received an application from the urban district council of Brentford for sanction to create a distress committee; and whether his Board is prepared to grant the application.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I have received the application, but in view of the small population, and of the other circumstances, I do not think I should be justified in acceding to it.
