HC Deb 27 July 1934 vol 292 cc2161-2W

asked the Minister of Health the capital value of housing and public works schemes in respect of which local authorities applied for loan sanction during the years ended 31st March, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1933 and 1934, and the value of such schemes for which loan sanction was withheld and granted, respectively, in each year, distinguishing hi each case the purpose of the loan; and whether he will make available to Members similar information for each subsequent year as soon as may be after the close of such year?


The capital value of the housing and public works schemes in respect of which loans have been sanctioned in the years named are shown in the following table:

Year ended 31st March. Loans for Housing. Loans for Public Works.
£ £
1930 35,999,921 36,358,352
1931 32,281,195 47,365,434
1932 22,738,631 34,375,486
1933 18,555,877 19,980,902
1934 21,858,565 20,344,465

Information of the capital value of schemes submitted in respect of which no loan sanction was ultimately granted could be given only after lengthy investigation and in some cases only estimates could be provided. Particulars of loans sanctioned are given for each year in the annual reports of the Ministry, and the total amount for each class of public works is shown. It is hoped that the report for 1933–34 will be published early next month.
