HC Deb 31 January 1929 vol 224 c1111

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in order to stimulate trade in the distressed mining areas, he will make representations to those responsible for the administration of the Lord Mayor's Fund as to the advisability of having goods purchased in the localities instead of having them sent from other centres?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Lord Eustace Percy)

This matter has already been brought to the attention of the Lord Mayor, and he has stated that, as far as possible, all supplies bought from his fund will be obtained locally.
