§ 51. Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that, under the West Ham Guardians, relief committee clerks, present members of the salaried staff, perform the work previously executed voluntarily by the members of the old board; whether he is aware that the clerks referred to receive 7s. 6d. per committee attended, and that some attend two or more committees weekly; whether he is aware that the amount incurred for such work totals £400 per annum; whether he will state whether such amount was included in the cost of administration of the present board; and, if not, under what heading is this expenditure shown?
This information is not in my possession, but I will make inquiries and communicate in due course with the hon. Member.
