§ 23. Sir John Mellor
asked the Minister of Health, whether he will take steps to empower local authorities to establish out of rate income reserve funds designed to meet the cost of maintenance work which has been postponed owing to the war?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I have received no representations on this matter from the associations of local authorities, and as 336 at present advised I do not contemplate the introduction of legislation.
§ Sir J. Mellor
Is not the underlying financial position of local authorities growing more and more unhealthy?
