§ 22. Mr. GODFREY NICHOLSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the amount owing to local authorities by miners on account of relief granted during the 1926 strike; the number of miners involved; the rate at which these amounts are being paid off; and the cost of collection, including office expenses?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I regret that the particulars desired by my hon. Friend are not available.
§ Mr. NICHOLSON
In any case, will the right hon. Gentleman consider the desirability from every point of view of urging upon local authorities to wipe out such sums as are still outstanding?
