§ Mr. MILLS
asked the Minister of Health whether the recent increase of interest rate on loans made by local authorities under the Small Dwellings Acquisition Act was decided upon by the Public Works Loan Board after consultation with the Ministry?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
The Order authorising the recent increase to which my hon. Friend refers was made by me, with the approval of the Treasury, under Section 5 of the Housing Act, 1921.
