HC Deb 02 May 1968 vol 763 cc227-8W
31. Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will hold an inquiry into why £26,000 allocated from his Department to the Huddersfield local authority for use in connection with immigrant schoolchildren is not being used for the purpose for which it was intended.

Mr. Ennals

Grants under Section 11 of the Local Government Act, 1966 are made in respect of the expenditure incurred on additional staff for various services and are, therefore, paid to the general funds of the authority concerned. I have no reason to suppose that the advances of grant made to Huddersfield have not been spent on the appointments on which their claim was based.
