Mr. W. Joseph Stewart
asked the Minister of Health the terms on which bulldozers are being loaned to local authorities, and if their service and maintenance will be a local or national charge.
§ Mr. Willink
The terms on which heavy plant will be (made available to local authorities or contractors employed by them for the preparation of housing sites will depend on the nature of the particular scheme and the type of plant required. The cost of operating the plant would form part of the cost of the housing scheme and would be met by the local authority in the ordinary way.
