75. Mr. MARK SYKES
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he will, in view of the demolition of houses in rural districts which are taking place under the provisions of the recent Housing and Town Planning Act, consider the desirability of securing powers for county councils to provide dwelling houses for the roadmen or other employés in their service?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
Where a county council are able to show that the provision of dwelling accommodation for roadmen or other employés in their service is necessary in the interests of efficient working, I have not refused to sanction loans for that purpose.
