HC Deb 24 July 1930 vol 241 cc2389-90
53. Mr. McSHANE

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, in regard to able-bodied men in receipt of relief from the Walsall Public Assistance Committee, one of his inspectors is insisting that these men shall work five days per week on test work irrespective of the amount of relief received; that the public assistance committee is opposed to this policy; that paragraph 6 of the Relief Regulation Order nowhere states that a uniform period of time should be worked by such men; and whether he will instruct the inspector accordingly?


I have no information on this matter other than a Press report, and I am asking the inspector for the facts of the case before expressing any opinion.

Forward to
