HC Deb 12 February 1934 vol 285 cc1582-3

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can make any statement with regard to the deputation from Glasgow Town Council which he received regarding the administration of able-bodied relief and the payment of 3s. per week to each child?


On 7th instant I received a deputation from Glasgow Town Council as to the difficulty experienced by the Public Assistance Committee in dealing with the great increase which has recently taken place in the number of able-bodied applicants for relief. I pointed out to the deputation that the administrative scheme permits of the Public Assistance Committee being increased in numbers and I suggested that the Corporation should consider doing this.
