The Regulations will be issued in a short time, and the amounts due under them to each Authority will then be ascertained.
It would only be a shot. I think I had better wait till the Regulations have been approved by the Treasury, then I can give the actual information.
Very shortly, I hope. They are before the Treasury at present; I expect them back in the course of two or three days.
§ Lord A. THYNNE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Grant to London in respect to the provision of meals is to be calculated on a basis of 50 per cent. of the cost of providing these meals?
I anticipate that it will certainly be 50 per cent. of the cost incurred in 1912–13, the last year for which we have statistical information.
Well, I do not like to say exactly that that is so before I have the particulars before me.
Will the Regulations include Grants for other areas to those mentioned in the question?
