HC Deb 11 July 1923 vol 166 cc1335-6
43. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now in a position to reply to the request for assistance based on the revised formula submitted to his Department some time ago by the representatives of necessitous areas; and, if not, whether, in view of the increasing cost of out-relief in certain districts, due to the continued growth of local unemployment, he will be able to do so before the House adjourns for the autumn?


I hope to be in a position to announce the decision of the Government on this question some time before the Adjournment.
