HC Deb 26 March 1929 vol 226 c2252
38. Mr. HAYES

asked the Minister of Health the reasons why assistance this year has been refused in connection with the summer camp of the St. Edward's Orphanage, Liverpool, thus reversing the practice of previous years?


The general view of my right hon. Friend is that camp expenses ought to be covered by the ordinary contributions paid by boards of guardians and it has not been the practice to approve special payments to the authorities of this school. My right hon. Friend has, however, informed the authorities concerned that he is prepared to consider an application for an increase in the present rate of ordinary contributions, supported by the ordinary information as to the financial position of the school.
