MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury what proportion of the £1,500,000 available for the purpose of providing sanatoria will be available for Scotland; and whether it will be allocated among counties and burghs on the basis of population or whether it will be pooled?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
In accordance with Section 64 (1) of the National Insurance Act the proportion of the total sum available in accordance with that Section for providing or maintaining Grants to sanatoria and other institutions which is allocated to England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales respectively will depend upon their populations as shown in the Census of 1911. The allocation of the sum so available for Scotland will rest primarily with the Scottish Local Government Board, and I understand is now under their consideration.
