Mr. E. M. POLLOCK (for Mr. Nield)
asked the President of the Local Government Board if his Department gives permission to boards of guardians or local authorities to raise money by loan when they have omitted to collect equivalent sums due to them by the ratepayers?
The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. John Bums)
The purposes for which the Board can sanction loans are expressly limited by statute, and I am not aware that the precise question put by the hon. Member has arisen.
