HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1513
78. Mr. PETO

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the damage that has been done by recent gales to the foreshore at Westward Ho and the quay at Appledore; and whether any grant can be made to local authorities towards meeting the heavy charge that is thrown upon the ratepayers and assisting to employ men who are out of work in making good the damage?


A grant could be made by the Unemployment Grants Committee if a satisfactory scheme for the protection of public property were submitted, and if the conditions on which they may make grants are satisfied.
