§ Mr. FRANCIS M'LAREN
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the fact that the East Elloe Rural District Council, although anxious to supply the pressing need for houses for the working classes in their district, have been refused the necessary loan by the Public Works Loan Commissioners; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
My attention has been drawn to the fact that the Public Works Loan Commissioners have refused to advance a loan which I have sanctioned to the East Elloe Rural District Council for the purchase of land as sites for the erection of houses under the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1890. The matter is receiving my serious consideration.
§ Sir ARTHUR MARKHAM
Is it not a fact that the Public Works Loan Commissioners are refusing to advance money for workmen's dwellings all over the country?
