HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 cc396-7W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Home Secretary what has been the additional cost to the Glamorgan County Council and the local authorities in Glamorgan incurred in painting the road white line, kerbs, etc., since the black-out commenced, and how is the cost being divided between the Ministry and the local authorities?

Mr. Mabane

My right hon. Friend is informed that the additional cost of the work referred to amounts to £11,128, of which £6,934 was expended by the county council and the balance by the local authorities in the county. The proportion of the cost to be borne by the Exchequer is still under consideration, but my right hon. Friend hopes to issue a circular on the subject to local authorities shortly.
