HC Deb 12 December 1912 vol 45 cc783-4W

asked the President of the Local Government Board, whether he has given his consent to the borrowing by the West Suffolk County Council from the Road Board of the sum of £19,000 for the re-construction of the New-market, Bury, and Ipswich main road; and, if not, why such consent is being withheld?


Consent has not yet been given, the borrowing powers of the county council under Section 69 of the Local Government Act, 1888, being, apparently, insufficient. The Local Government Board are in communication with the county council on the subject.
