§ 42. Mr. LONGBOTTOM
asked the Minister of Health, with reference to paragraph 16 of the Local Government Bill (Financial Memorandum), if he will 1910 state the estimated effect of the original proposal in Cmd. 3134 regarding the relation of Exchequer grants to rate-borne expenditure?
It is difficult to reply to this question within the limits of a Parliamentary answer, and I suggest the hon. Member should await the explanation which I shall hope to give in the course of the Debates on the Bill.
