HC Deb 27 October 1908 vol 195 c48
MR. HORNIMAN (Chelsea)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether a man who had been in receipt of out-door relief, if otherwise qualified, would be able to claim an old-age pension if he, his relations, friends, or a charitable institution refunded the total amount he had received from the guardians.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) This matter, with some others which have arisen under the recent Act and which involve legal considerations, is receiving attention, but I am not in a position at present to give a definite answer with regard to it.
