§ 81. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the discontent caused by the prevention of the building or extension of village community halls; and what steps are being taken to remedy the situation.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
I realise that the temporary restriction of grants under the Physical Training and Recreation Act to those village hall schemes the need for which is specially urgent has caused disappointment, but I do not feel able to treat these schemes differently from other local projects which involve capital expenditure.
