§ 7. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will give instructions for the collection and preparation for early presentation to the Members of the House of a return showing the number of ex-service men with their dependants receiving out-relief, those resident in workhouses, and those charged to local rates who are in mental institutions?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given yesterday 1572 to a similar question by the hon. Member for East Kingston-upon-Hull (Mr. Lumley).
§ Mr. LUMLEY
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that a number of boards of guardians are asking for these returns?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am not aware of that circumstance. The answer given yesterday was to the effect, that considerable trouble and expense to boards of guardians would be involved.
