HC Deb 07 November 1932 vol 270 cc21-2

asked the Minister of Health if he will state from what local authorities he has received requests for official sanction for loans by local authorities for reproductive purposes; what are the schemes they put forward; and what was the ministerial reply in each case?


The information would have to be specially prepared and therefore my right hon. Friend is not able to furnish my hon. and gallant Friend with it at the moment, but he may state that it is the policy of the Government to sanction loans for remunerative works, and a large number of sanctions have been given. My right hon. Friend is not at present aware of any case where an application for loan has been refused for satisfactory works which were self-supporting.
