HC Deb 02 July 1923 vol 166 c42
82. Mr. IRVING

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the urgent importance of the matter to the Poor Law authorities concerned, he is yet in a position to announce the decision of the Government upon the revised formula submitted to him on behalf of the representatives of necessitous areas for assisting them financially during the present time of unexampled destitution?


asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the local governing bodies of the necessitous areas are very anxiously awaiting his formula for the relief of such areas; and whether, in order to allay such anxiety, he is now in a position to state what his proposals are?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

I am afraid I can add nothing to the reply given to previous questions—that this matter is still under consideration.
