§ 30. Sir Walter Smiles
asked the Minister of Health the object of the amalgamation of the Walmer Urban Council with Deal Corporation in 1935; and whether that object has been successfully achieved?
§ Sir K. Wood
The object of the amalgamation was that the single urban aggregation formerly divided between these two councils should form a single unit for the purposes of local government. This object was achieved by the Order made in 1935, and I have no reason to suppose that the operation of the Order is presenting difficulty.
§ Sir W. Smiles
May I ask whether the rates of Walmer have gone up or down since the amalgamation, and whether the people of Walmer are paying more?
