HC Deb 07 May 1931 vol 252 c554
56. Mr. LEES

asked the Minister of Health the reasons for the delay in sanctioning the raising of a loan by the Belper Urban District Council for the proposed sewerage scheme for their district?


I would draw my hon. Friend's attention to my answer to his question of 5th March. The receipt of the revised plans and estimates from the local authority is still awaited, and until these are received it is not possible to take any action in the matter.


Is my right hon. Friend aware that at a meeting of the council on 29th April, complaint was made that on 8th July last they applied for a grant and have heard nothing further about it beyond a bare acknowledgment of a receipt of the letter? Am I to understand that they have to submit a revised plan and estimates before the question of a grant can be considered?


I think that was the point of a letter I wrote earlier, to which they have not yet taken the trouble to reply.
