HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c156W
123. Mr. Renton

asked the Minister of Education whether she will reconsider her decision to make no grants for the building of village halls and community centres in the case of those remote villages which have no other suitable place for public assembly.

Miss Horsbrugh

No. I regret that my financial and building resources do not allow me to offer grants towards the building of any new village halls and community centres except under the terms of paragraph 19 of Circular 245 of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
