HC Deb 26 February 1914 vol 58 c1951
73. Mr. ALDEN

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether boards of guardians can supplement the amount received by an old age pensioner under the Act without disfranchising the recipient of such relief; and, if so, would he state the circumstances under which such relief is or could be granted?


Any relief at the expense of the poor rate, other than medical or surgical assistance, has the effect of disfranchising.
