§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether it is necessary, under any Order of his Department, that all married applicants for medical relief should produce a marriage certificate; and, if not, whether he is aware that the Kensington Board of Guardians make this a condition for granting such relief; and what action he proposes to take in this matter.
§ (Answered by Mr. John Burns.) There is no order of the Local Government Board requiring married applicants for medical relief to produce a marriage certificate. I am making inquiry as to the practice of the Kensington Board of Guardians in this matter.
