§ Mr. NANNETTI
asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended to continue the work of the distress committees in the United Kingdom and Ireland during the years 1910–11; and, if so, will he ask Parliament for a Vote of the money to defray the expenses of these committees?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
The Prime Minister has asked me to reply to this question. The Unemployed Workmen Act, 1905, under which distress committees act, has been continued until 31st December, 1910. The question of its further continuance and of a further Parliamentary Grant will be considered.
