HC Deb 28 April 1936 vol 311 cc736-7

asked the Minister of Health whether the announcement to the effect that no grant will be forthcoming from his Department after 25th April of this year to local authorities who have not taken advantage of the Rural Water Supplies Act, 1934, will disqualify any authority from being assisted with any future schemes which may have been delayed owing to other urgent commitments?


Yes, Sir. The £1,000,000 grant for the assistance of rural water schemes has now been allocated, the capital cost of the schemes so grant-aided will exceed £6,000,000.
