HC Deb 14 November 1929 vol 231 c2216
73. Mr. TINKER

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the cost to the Leigh Board of Guardians for the relief of disabled ex-service men and their families during the last six months has been £128, and that the board have carried a resolution asking the Government to institute an inquiry into the payment for relief of disabled ex-service men, as they are of opinion that it should be a national charge; and will he say what he intends to do in the matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and to the second part in the affirmative. As regards the third part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Tavistock (Brigadier-General Wright) on the 4th November.
