HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 c1696W

asked the Minister of Health how many organisations have applied for approval under the Local Authorities (Publicity) Act, 1931; how many have been approved; and what is his guiding principle in considering such applications?


Applications have been made for my approval on behalf of six organisations but, so far, I have approved the Travel Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland alone. In dealing with applications my guiding principle is that the national interest and not sectional interests shall be served, that the best value shall be obtained for the ratepayer's money, and that there shall not be competition between different parts of this country at the ratepayer's expense.
