HC Deb 24 May 1906 vol 157 c1418
MR. SEDDON (Lancashire, Newton)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will issue a Return giving the number of local distress committees and the cost of working the same up to March 31st, 1906.


There are eighty-nine distress committees in England and Wales outside London. I am obtaining particulars as to their expenditure, and I will then consider the question of the issue of a return on the subject.
