HC Deb 21 January 1937 vol 319 c332
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?

Sir K. Wood

I shall be glad if my hon. Friend will give me notice of that question.

Mr. Petherick

Has not the Walmer Urban District Council had a fair deal?
