HC Deb 29 July 1937 vol 326 c3309
70. Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the case of a man and wife a child under five years of age who are attempting to feed themselves, after the payment of rent, on a few shillings a week received from the Unemployment Assistance Board, and who have applied, without success, for free milk for the child to the local relieving officer, the Unemployment Assistance Board, and the milk distribution centre at the Camberwell Town Hall; and whether he will take any action in the matter?

Sir K. Wood

My attention had not previously been drawn to this case. I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.

Mr. E. Smith

In view of the fact that the House rises to-morrow, and that we shall not have an opportunity of raising this matter again before the Recess, will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to give his personal attention to it?

Sir K. Wood

Yes, Sir, I will certainly do that; and if the hon. Member is interested in the case, I will let him know the result.
