HC Deb 05 March 1936 vol 309 c1559
53. Mr. HOLMES

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider an amendment of the Health Resorts and Watering Places Act, 1921, so that the council of any borough or urban district may be able to expend for the purpose of advertising the advantages and amenities of the borough or district the profits received by them from the letting of chairs, tents, bathing machines, letting of stalls to beach vendors, and entertainments or recreation provided by them and the like, without the total sum being restricted to the produce of a ld. rate?


I have received representations in favour of an amendment of this Act from the Association of Health and Pleasure Resorts, and I understand that the Association contemplates the introduction of a Bill which will deal with the point raised by my hon. Friend, among others.

Forward to
