§ 37. Mr. G. HALL
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the number of able-bodied men and women who applied for relief to the Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydvil Bcards of Guardians during 1927; 2097 the number who were given relief and the cost; the number who were offered the institution; and the number who refused to accept?
This information is not available from the returns supplied to me, and the records of the guardians do not enable it to be readily given. I have, however, communicated with the clerks to the guardians mentioned in the question and will send the hon. Member a note of the information which I have received.
