§ 41. Mr. Jay
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many schemes for the clearance of derelict sites under Section 5 of the Distribution of Industry Act, 1945, whether by his Department or by grant, have now been approved this year; and what is the total cost of such schemes.
§ Sir D. Eccles
Two, Sir. Grants to the local authorities in these cases are estimated at £20,500, representing 75 per cent. of the cost of clearance. Many more are under consideration and I am doing my best to reach decisions on them as soon as possible.
