§ Mr. W. R. Duckworth
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he has now received the bills of the different local authorities for operating the Fuel Regulations Order; and what is the amount of money involved?
§ Mr. Lloyd
Local authorities have been informed that their first claims for refund of expenses should cover the period ended 31st December, 1939. The forms on which these claims are to be submitted will be circulated to local authorities within a few days. It is not, therefore, possible at present to estimate the expenditure involved.
