§ 6. Mr. SULLIVAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of unemployed being paid by the various parishes in Lanarkshire and the total sum paid in 1926, 1927, and 1928, respectively, and the effect of this expense on the rates?
§ 18. Mr. SULLIVAN
asked the Lord Privy Seal what schemes have been submitted and the number approved for grant by the public authorities of Lanarkshire?
Since the 1st of June, 1929, 15 schemes estimated to cost about£230,000 have been submitted to the Unemployment Grants Committee by local authorities in Lanarkshire, and schemes estimated to cost£200,000 have so far 1172 been approved for grant by the Committee. As regards roads, a programme of works estimated to cost£1,670,000 was submitted tentatively to the Ministry of Transport by the County Council on the 6th September. The terms and conditions upon which assistance would be given from the Road Fund to schemes approved for inclusion in the five years' programme were communicated to the Council on the 14th September and confirmed at an interview in Edinburgh or the 25th November. It is understood that the Council are now considering the formulation of a definite programme of road works.
§ Mr. SULLIVAN
Can the right hon. Gentleman give me any details of the schemes for the county of Lanarkshire as distinct from the borough of Glasgow?
I am not certain of the details, but, if the hon. Member will put down a question, I will give an answer.
