HC Deb 23 February 1914 vol 58 cc1388-9
27. Mr. CASSEL

asked whether there are about 2,000 cases every year of insured persons receiving relief from the guardians; and whether the Government propose to take any action in the matter?


My right hon. Friend is not aware what authority the hon. Member has for the figures referred to, nor does he know of any source from which reliable figures of this kind could be obtained, whether for England or for the United Kingdom as a whole.


Is the hon. Member aware that a statement to this effect was made at the Central Poor Law Conference?


No, Sir, I am not aware of that fact.
