Lieut. - Colonel AGLAND - TROYT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to take any action in accordance with the resolution of the County Councils' Association forwarded to him in May, 1930, in which it was urged that the whole cost of any new legislation should be borne by the Exchequer; and if he will explain why no reply beyond a bare acknowledgment has been forwarded to this association?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, a resolution of this kind did not appear to me to call for more than an acknowledgment.
