§ 36. Mr. MORGAN JONES (forMr. THORNE)
asked the Minister of Health whether he will issue a report in connection with the deputation he received from the Liverpool Corporation; and if he is aware that at least 50 other local authorities in necessitous areas have been urging that the expenditure incurred by assisting able-bodied unemployed should be a national charge and not a local one?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
My right hon. Friend is sending the hon. Member a copy of an agreed notice published after the deputation. As regards the second part of the question, my right hon. Friend is aware that a certain number of local authorities have expressed views to the effect stated.
