§ 11. Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
asked how many new sanatoria have been built by means of Grants from the £1,500,000 provided by the Finance Act, 1911; and how many are in course of erection?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
My hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. So far as England is concerned, the number of cases in which building is being aided by Capital Grants is sixty-nine. The work has been completed in twenty-two cases; in the remaining cases the plans have been approved by the Local Government Board, 906 and in most of them the buildings are, I assume, in course of erection. In addition, fourteen sites have been approved for the erection of new sanatoria.
§ Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
Did the right hon. Gentleman say that twenty-two had been actually completed?
