HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1717W
Colonel THORNE

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he is aware that many local authorities in various parts of the country have promoted schemes for carrying out many local improvements; and whether, when local authorities apply for a loan to carry out such work, every facility is given by his Department to get the loan sanctioned?


Many local authorities have promoted schemes for carrying out local improvements, and where such schemes are within the statutory powers of the authorities and are not open to objection on merits or otherwise the Local Government Board are giving every facility in obtaining their sanction to the necessary loan.
