HC Deb 14 February 1911 vol 21 cc872-3

asked under what provisions of any Statute or under what authority the Poor Law Outdoor Relief Regulations, 1911, are made limiting the powers of the Poor Law guardians in administering outdoor relief?


I presume the hon. Member refers to the Regulations suggested by the Departmental Committee on the Outdoor Relief Orders. Such Regulations would be made under the provisions of Sections 15 and 52 of the Poor Law Amendment Act, 1834.
