HC Deb 29 March 1922 vol 152 cc1328-9

asked the Minister of Health the numbers and names of the boards of guardians in the County of London who have applied to his Department for loans owing to the great increase of relief in their respective districts; can he give the total for each board; what the total amount of the loan is for all London; and for what period of years they are granted?
