HC Deb 01 December 1958 vol 596 c100W
Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Education under what conditions he now makes grants towards the cost of village halls and community centres; and where the regulations may be found.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

These grants are made under Section 3 of the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937. New grants to local authorities will cease from 1st April, 1959, owing to the operation of the Local Government Act, 1958. Grants to voluntary bodies will not be affected by this change. I am sending to the hon. Member details of the information normally required for considering applications.
