§ 77. Mr. ROBERT MORRISON
asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether he is aware that the maintenance of 160 unemployed marchers has cost the Edmonton Board of Guardians up to the present £500; and whether he intends to make a grant from Government funds towards such costs?
§ Major BOYD-CARPENTER
My right hon. Friend is aware that this board of guardians has incurred expenditure in the relief of some of these men. There are no funds at his disposal out of which such a grant as is suggested could be made.
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Is the hon. Member aware that many boards of guardians are in a similar position, and is he aware that Members on this side of the House believe that if the Prime Minister would receive a deputation from the unem- 1751 ployed all this expenditure would be avoided?
§ Mr. HARDIE
If the Minister has no money to meet a claim like this, where did the money come from to take a Prince from Greece?
