§ 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?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
Any relief at the expense of the poor rate, other than medical or surgical assistance, has the effect of disfranchising.
