§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked whether grants out of the Development Fund for such objects as agricultural research or the development of any branch of rural industry will be made to meet capital outlay upon buildings and equipment or only for the purposes of annual maintenance; or whether such grants will be available both for capital outlay upon and the maintenance of such objects?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
No distinction is drawn in the Development Act of last Session between advances in respect of capital outlay and annual maintenance, but it is manifestly impossible for my right hon. Friend to foresee what view the Development Commission may take on the subject.
