HC Deb 17 July 1919 vol 118 cc589-90

asked the Minister of Health if he can make any statement as to the arrangements which have been made by way of response to his instructions to local government authorities that on the occasion of the Peace celebrations special entertainment could be offered to inmates of workhouses; and whether these instructions also affect people in receipt of out-relief?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Dr. Addison)

Poor Law authorities are not required to report the action which they propose to take under the recent Order which authorises the making of special arrangements for persons in receipt of out-relief as well as for the inmates of the institutions.
