§ 79. Mr. MESSER
asked the Minister of Health how many Poor Law officers are claiming compensation for loss of office in consequence of the transfer of the administration of the Poor Law to county councils: and what is the total sum involved?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
This information is not available. Claims to compensation cannot be made until after 1st April when the transfer of Poor Law officers takes place and will not come before me unless there is an appeal against a decision of a council.
