HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 c931
19. Captain Duncan

asked the Minister of Health under what conditions the loans were made to the Metropolitan boroughs in order to prevent a serious increase in rates.

Mr. Willink

I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of a reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Tamworth (Sir J. Mellor) on 24th June, 1941, in which the principles and conditions on which these advances have been made were fully explained.

Captain Duncan

Does the Minister expect that the loan outstanding will be repaid in due course?

Mr. Willink

I could not say that without notice.
