§ 61. Major LLOYD-GREAME
asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended to offer to Irish local authorities more favourable financial conditions in respect of the make-up of annual deficits in housing schemes than those offered to local 5 authorities in Great Britain; and, if so, what are the reasons for such preferential treatment?
§ Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)
The terms of the English scheme are not suitable to Irish conditions, and I am now in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary as to the best equivalent for Ireland.
Is it not a fact that under the Housing of the Working Classes Acts of Ireland there is a far larger proportion of the deficit borne by the public than in England?
