§ Mr. HARDIE
I beg to move, in page 39, line 11, at the end, to insert the words:(9) Nothing in this Section or in any scheme shall diminish or otherwise affect the duty of the council to provide relief for the poor.
§ Major ELLIOT
It is not necessary to have these words in the Bill. The hon. Member will realise that any such specification as this will weaken the rest of the Clause. All the residual liabilities on the parish or Poor Law authorities remain unchanged, and any specification of certain duties would merely weaken the responsibility which falls on them for all these residual functions.
§ Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
