§ 7. Mr. EVERARD
asked the Minister of Labour which municipal authorities have made application to the Unemployment Grants Committee for assistance in laying out municipal aerodromes; whether grants have been made to any; and the amount of such grants?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
Since 1st June, 1929, grants-in-aid of the cost of laying out municipal aerodromes have been approved by the Unemployment Grants Committee in respect of schemes submitted by Bristol, Cardiff, Kingston-upon-Hull, Norwich, Plymouth, Portsmouth and Stoke-upon-Trent. The rates of grant vary according to circumstances. In addition, the question of a grant in respect of an extension of the Kingston-upon-Hull schemes is under consideration, and a grant in respect of a scheme submitted by Liverpool was not approved.
§ Mr. EVERARD
Is there any time limit, when once sanction for the grant is given, as to when the work has to start?
