HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c421W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if the Government will arrange for the payment of the cost of the recent storm damage in such a way that local authorities do not have to borrow money with consequent interest repayments over a number of years;

(2) if the Government will put a ceiling on the amount which will be added to rates as a result of the recent hurricane disaster.

Mr. Ross:

I cannot at present add to what I told the House in the debate on 7th February.—[Vol. 758, c. 420–1.]
