§ 45. Major BREESE
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the return to civil life of a number of men who have served in the forces of the Crown and have enjoyed during their period of service the social amenities provided in connection with regimental institutions, and the absence of any such facilities for recreation and social intercourse in the rural districts of the country, he can state what contribution, if any, he proposes to make from State funds in aid of such forms of war memorials as are contemplated in the erection of village halls and institutions?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Major Astor)
The Local Government Board are prepared to sanction expenditure by local authorities for this purpose.
Lieutenant-Colonel C. LOWTHER
Would not an economical solution of this important question be to use the obsolete hutments all over the country for this specific purpose? Would this suggestion be considered?
