HC Deb 18 December 1908 vol 198 cc2235-6
MR. KEIR HARDIE (Merthyr Tydvil)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the register for the unemployed at Gateshead under the Unemployed Workmen Act is kept at the union offices; and whether: he will make representations with a view to having the register removed to a place where it will have no appearance of I association with the Poor Law.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I am not informed where the register is kept, but, as the clerk to the guardians is clerk to the distress committee, it is probable that it is kept at the union offices. I will communicate with the distress committee on the subject.
