§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Hayes Fisher)
Two conferences have taken place, and at the second many details were discussed in a very friendly manner. The Statutory Committee are satisfied that they, will now be able to make satisfactory arrangements with regard to local funds. The Lord Mayor's Committee had unanimously resolved that no grant made out of any fund raised locally or by way of voluntary gift should be taken into account by the local or Statutory Committee, or treated as "other income" as defined by the Regulations, provided the same does not form a permanent addition to the income of the recipient. This has been accepted by the Statutory Committee, and words to the above effect have been inserted in the Instructions accompanying their Regulations.
