75. Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the total amount of the loans which he has sanctioned boards of guardians to raise during the last two years for the purposes of paying out relief and other charges in connection with unemployment; and the maximum and minimum rates being levied by these boards of guardians?
Approximately £20,000,000; but this figure of course includes renewals. The rates in the unions affected vary from 1s. 5¾d. to 10s. 4½d.
