HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 c1082W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if, considering the great need of road repair and reconstruction in the county palatine of Lancaster, due primarily to the postponement of repairs, etc., during the War period, he will recommend to the Treasury that payment in respect of loans raised prior to loth August, 1919, shall be recognised by the Treasury for the purpose of obtaining grants?


This question has received full consideration, and I am unable to hold out any hope of a reversal of the Government's decision, which was arrived at after a review of all material considerations.
