HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 cc1003-4
36. Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Health whether boys and girls who have been evacuated, and who have got a job of work, are compelled to pay their billeting costs?

Mr. E. Brown

Billeted children who obtain remunerative employment will be required to contribute towards the cost of their billeting. The contribution will be assessed at a figure which will obviate any hardship. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of a recent circular which explains the arrangements in detail.

Mr. Lindsay

Are children allowed to stay in hostels when they have gone to work on the countryside?

Mr. Brown

I should like to have notice of that Question.
