§ 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.
