asked the Minister of Health how many years have elapsed since relations between the Imperial and local exchequers were last adjusted by legislation?
Sir A. MOND
The relations between the Imeprial and local exchequers are frequently being adjusted. The last general adjustment was effected by the Local Government Act, 1888. Since then, however, many of the grants have been revised, and additional grants have; been provided for both by legislation and by direct Votes by Parliament.
