§ 56. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the accumulated arrears of rates for the city of Sheffield now amount to £536,298; that during the year ending 31st March, 1925, 47,180 summonses were issued for non-payment of rates; that the guardians' debt now amounts, for unemployment alone, to £698,000; and that the additional burden imposed upon the city by the Regulations of the Minister of Labour amount to £600 per week; and whether the Government propose to grant substantial subsidies to this black spot?
§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
I can add nothing to the reply given to a similar question put by the hon. Member on the 26th March last.
