§ 24. Mr. BEAUMONT
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has considered the recommendations of the deputation from the Rural Reconstruction Association recently received by the First Commissioner of Works on his behalf; and what action he proposes to take?
As my right hon. Friend informed the deputation and as I subsequently advised them, the Government has offered financial assistance to local authorities for schemes of the type proposed by the Association. It is for the Association to move the local authorities to take advantage of this offer.
