HC Deb 17 March 1938 vol 333 c614W
Sir R. Rankin

asked the Minister of Health whether he can provide a list of towns with over 20,000 inhabitants which still have made no provision for closed-in swimming baths; and what steps are being taken to proceed with such provision?

Sir K. Wood

I regret that no such list is available. Grants in aid of the provision of such baths are available under the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937. A number of applications for grant for this purpose are being received and, wherever suitable, are being sympathetically considered.
