HC Deb 16 June 1904 vol 136 c264
SIR WALTER FOSTER (Derbyshire, Ilkeston)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether boards of guardians have printed or written scales of relief which provide for out-relief in money and bread according to the number of children needing relief; and, if so, whether the Local Government Board will either direct their inspectors to advise, or issue a circular advising, an allowance of milk in the case of young out-relieved children needing milk, and also to nursing mothers in receipt of out-relief.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) I believe that some boards of guardians have scales of relief of the kind referred to. I think boards of guardians may be trusted to use their discretion as to the granting of allowances of milk in the cases mentioned in the latter part of the Question; but I will brine the matter under the notice of the inspectors.
