§ 50. Sir JOHN PENNEFATHER
asked the Minister of Health in how many cases in the Liverpool district the old age pensions have been found to be insufficient and have been supplemented by the Poor Law guardians, and the minimum and maximum of the relief so granted?
§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
On the 1st January, 1925, the number of old age pensioners in receipt of Poor Law relief, who were chargeable to the West Derby Union, was 1,004. All these pensioners, with 30 exceptions, were suffering from 2467 sickness, accident or bodily or mental infirmity. Precise figures as to the minimum and maximum amounts of relief granted in individual cases are not available.
