§ Mr. LANSBURY
asked the President of the Local Government Board what is the actual net cost of maintenance of men sent to Hollesley Bay Labour Colony by the Central (Unemployed) Body for London, excluding the cost of maintenance of wives and children in London?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
Calculated on the basis indicated in my reply to the hon. Member for Devonport on the 26th ultimo, the net cost of maintenance of men employed at the Hollesley Bay Colony, as distinguished from the cost of maintaining their wives and families, is 16.2 shillings per man per week.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Are not the questions of the maintenance of these men and of their wives and children connected with one another?
