HC Deb 06 December 1922 vol 159 c1760
56. Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the large sum of public money which is being spent under the percentage grant system to local authorities, he will say if a committee was appointed by the late Government to report on the percentage payment system; is the committee still in existence: and, if not, is it intended to provide for its re-appointment?


The answer to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative. The third part, therefore, does not arise.
