§ 40. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the low rates of interest at which loans can now be raised by local authorities for public 1710 works and the insufficient accommodation provided by the present municipal offices, he will be prepared to reconsider his refusal to sanction a loan to the Borough of Walthamstow for the purpose of erecting new municipal offices?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
My right hon. Friend would be prepared to consider a scheme for new municipal offices in Walthamstow, always provided that it is limited to what is required to meet the needs of the borough.
