HC Deb 09 July 1924 vol 175 cc2240-1
40. Sir K. WOOD

asked the Minister of Health whether he can now make a statement concerning the appeals he has received against surcharges made by the district auditor in the cases of certain London boards of guardians?


As was stated in reply to a recent question by the hon. Member, the appeals are under consideration. I am not yet in a position to make any statement as to my decision in the matter.


Does the right hon. Gentleman not think that these matters have been very long delayed, and is it not time that he came to a decision so that the House may know exactly what he is doing?

Viscount CURZON

Will the right hon. Gentleman be able to announce his decision 'before the House rises for the Recess?


I am advised probably not. They have not yet reached it.
