HC Deb 20 November 1930 vol 245 c608
69. Mr. HOPKIN

asked the Minister of Health the number of applications received by the Carmarthenshire County Council for grants under the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926; the number of successful applications; the amount of money granted under this Act; and if he is satisfied with the results of the working of this Act in the county of Carmarthen?


Applications have been made in respect of 83 dwellings, and assistance amounting to £2,084 has been promised in respect of 22. These results are not very great, but I have at present no reason to suppose that the Council are not endeavouring to make a proper use of their powers under the Act.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that 90 per cent. of the applicants in Scotland were successful?
