§ 19. Miss LAWRENCE
asked the Minister of Health if any amount of money has been advanced from public funds during the past four years in the provision, improvement, or maintenance of the casual wards of Poor Law authorities?
Expenditure on the provision, improvement or maintenance of the casual wards of Poor Law authorities is charged to the local rates partly by means of loans raised by boards of guardians in the usual way and partly out of current rates. Capital expenditure to the amount of £122,206 has been authorised in the last four years.
