HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 cc493-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the rateable value of the Wrexham Rural District Council is £208,000, which places them in the category of finding the money for the purchase of land and the building of Louses for themselves; that they have tried to find the money everywhere and have failed, and that unless the Government will come to the rescue and find the money the building of houses in this district will be indefinitely hung up; and whether he will now arrange with the Treasury to find the necessary money and relieve the present situation?


I have been in communication with the Treasury, and regret that they have not been able to depart from the rule hitherto observed in these cases.
