HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 cc773-4
SIR WALTER FOSTER (Derbyshire, Ilkeston)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will take steps to have a report made by the inspector now investigating the arrangements for outdoor medical relief in the Metropolis on the number of unions, if any, in which medical relief is granted on loan in the first instance, and on the practice of requiring applicants for medical relief to attend before the Board or a committee, with a statement of how long such practice has been in force and its effects on the number of applications.

(Answered by Mr. Waller Long.) I will take steps to give effect to this suggestion as far as may be practicable.
