HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c607
85. Mr. HARRIS

asked the Minister of Health whether schemes from all the new authorities to be responsible for public assistance under the Local Government Act have been submitted and approved by the Ministry of Health; and whether he is satisfied that all the authorities responsible will be able to fulfil their obligations as to public health, public assistance and education by the appointed day?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have no doubt that all the responsible authorities are fully alive to the importance of fulfilling the obligations transferred to them, and I have no reason to suppose that any of them will be unable to do so.
