§ 52. Mr. Henry Strauss
(for Sir Reginald Blair)asked the Home Secretary the cost to the Exchequer if the scheme-making authorities received the whole cost of public air-raid shelters erected or contracted for before 16th October last instead of the grant of 60 per cent.?
§ Mr. Mabane
The rate of grant is not uniform but varies in different areas. It is estimated that the additional cost to the Exchequer would be —9,000,000.
