HC Deb 16 December 1935 vol 307 c1388
78. Mr. BATEY

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of schemes that have been submitted to his Department in keeping with the recent Budget provision for the elimination of redundant works, plant, machinery, or ships?


Applications for certificates under Section 25 of the Finance Act, 1935, have been submitted to the Board of Trade in respect of five schemes. Certificates have been granted in respect of two of them; the others are under consideration.


In the schemes for which certificates have been granted, is there power to close the works for a long term of years?


If my hon. Friend will put down that question, I will try to get him an answer.
