§ 24. Mr. GEORGE TERRELL
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has been able to make any arrangements with the National Insurance Commissioners to assist the Poor Law authorities in tracing, through the medium of their insurance cards, men who have deserted their families, thus causing them to be chargeable to such authorities?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
The Government have decided that information which has been obtained solely for the purpose of administering the Insurance Act could not properly be used, unless in very exceptional cases, for purposes such as those suggested in the question.
