HC Deb 29 March 1938 vol 333 c1830
41. Mr. Messer

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the widespread dissatisfaction in Canterbury at the action of the Canterbury public assistance committee in demanding the resignation of certain members of the staff of the public assistance institution; whether he has considered a request for an inquiry; and what action he proposes to take?

Sir K. Wood

I have received a communication from an organisation representing certain members of the staff of the institution. My consent is not required to the determination of the appointments of any of the officers in question, but I am asking the town council for a report on the matter and I will communicate with the hon. Member in due course.
