HC Deb 17 November 1927 vol 210 c1105
50. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Minister of Health the results of the administration of the Poor Law by guardians appointed under the Boards of Guardians (Default) Act, 1926; and whether such administration has led to an increase or decrease in expenditure and pauperism?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reports made by the guardians, which have been presented to Parliament. In every case there has been a decrease both in expenditure and in pauperism.
