HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 cc1002-3
59. Mr. MILLS

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the position of an unemployed man whose wife and children have obtained parish relief, but who has abstained himself from such a claim, in relation to the elections shortly to be held for local government and county councils; and whether he has considered the desirability of introducing legislation to declare whether such a person is disqualified because his dependants have received relief?


I am not at present in a position to make a statement on the matter to which the hon. Member refers.
