HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c35W
111. Sir H. Williams

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why the Exchequer contribution to local authorities under Part I of the Local Government Act, 1948, increased from £50,540,000 in 1951–52 to £57,950,000 in 1952–53.

Mr. Marples

The grant is related to the expenditure, which was increased in the later year notably by salary and wage awards to teachers and others.
