HC Deb 08 April 1941 vol 370 c1435W
Captain P. Macdonald

asked the Minister of Health what is the present position with regard to financial assistance for local authorities unable to balance their budgets as a result of loss suffered since being defined as within protected areas; which local authorities have actually received grants-in-aid and to what extent; and which have applied for assistance without success?

Mr. E. Brown

A total of £4,651,820 has been advanced to date to local authorities who are in financial difficulties owing to the war. I think it would not be in the national interest for me to publish the names of the local authorities concerned, but I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend for his private information a statement showing the names of the authorities and the total amount so far advanced in each case.
