§ 41. Mr. MONTAGUE
asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes to limit his nominations to the Metropolitan Asylum Board to those resident in the County of London, in view of the importance of the present and prospective duties of the Board?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
The qualification of a nominated manager of the Board is prescribed in Section 167 (4) of the Poor Law Act, 1927, and confines nominations to justices of the peace resident within the asylum district and ratepayers assessed to the general rate therein.
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how far the Asylum Board area differs from that of the administrative county?
§ 42. Mr. MONTAGUE
asked the Minister of Health whether he has assured himself that all the members he has nominated to the Metropolitan Asylum Board have the necessary qualification; and whether he will ensure that all the 622 members shortly to be nominated by him shall possess the necessary qualification tinder the Acts?
