HC Deb 10 November 1921 vol 148 c631W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Minister of Health whether steps can be, and will be, taken during the Recess to restrain local bodies from maintaining packs of hounds and organising visits to theatres at the expense of the ratepayers?


It is open to any ratepayer who considers that a local authority is proposing to incur illegal expenditure to make an application to the High Court to restrain the local authority from incurring such expenditure.
