HC Deb 05 December 1928 vol 223 c1219
44. Lieut.-Colonel WATTS - MORGAN (for Mr. W. THORNE)

asked the Minister of Health whether he intends making special arrangements with the county borough of West Ham in connection with the Poor Law union financial adjustments; and, seeing that the borough will be divided from the other local authorities within the Poor Law union area, what will be the amount of the poor rate?


The arrangements which it is proposed should be made in the case of West Ham will be discussed in Committee. My right hon. Friend hopes they will enable some relief to be given to the ratepayers.
