HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 cc36-7W
92. Mr. T. Price

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that the net value of domestic salvage collected by the Westhoughton Urban District Council during the past year was, approximately, equal to a 6d. rate; and if he will consider making suitable recognition of such good work being done in this and other areas in the national interest.

Mr. Marples

Yes. The 6d. rate is, my right hon. Friend thinks, a good reward for the service which the council has rendered in the national interest. He hopes the publicity given to the matter by this Question and answer will urge local authorities to even greater efforts to help the country and the rates in this way.
