HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1613
MR. CLYNES (Manchester, N.E.)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether grants will be made to local authorities in urban districts which may have put work in hand for the relief of the unemployed, but where no distress committees have been or can be created under regulations previously applied.


The grant is voted for expenses under the Unemployed Workmen Act, and consequently payments can only be made from it when a central body or distress committees have been set up under that Act.
