HC Deb 06 November 1934 vol 293 cc820-6
43. Lord SCONE

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will state in detail the allocation of the £137,500 provided for the improvement of Scottish rural water supplies, giving in each case the amount to be provided from the grant and by the local authority concerned, respectively?


As the answer is long and contains a number of figures, I propose, with my hon. Friend's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The following table shows (a) the allocation of grants provisionally offered under the Rural Water Supplies Act, 1934, to local authorities in Scotland, (b) the estimated resultant cost to be met out of local rates, and (c) the grant expressed as a percentage of the total estimated cost of each scheme.
