§ 44. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will sanction under the proviso to Section 228(1) of the Local Government Act, 1933, the normal out-of-pocket and travelling expenses of members and appropriate officers of local authorities, who are selected by their councils to accept the invitations to visit the Building Research Station, contained in his Department's letter of 20th July, 1966, in preference to the more cumbrous procedure of having to rely on Section 115 of the Local Government Act 1948, as amended by the Public Authorities (Allowances) Act, 1961.
§ Mr. Crossman
No. Sanctions under Section 228 are reserved for exceptional296W circumstances. Attendance at the Building Research Station falls naturally within Section 115 of the Local Government Act 1948, as amended.
