87. Sir J. D. REES
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether it is intended to give adequate representation of the existing Poor Law authorities upon the proposed consultative councils to be constituted in connection with the new Ministry of Health?
§ Major ASTOR
I am glad to have this opportunity of stating that the desirability of utilising the special knowledge and experience of persons familiar with the work of Poor Law authorities will be fully borne in mind in determining the composition of the consultative councils which it is proposed to establish under Clause 4 of the Ministry of Health Bill.
