HC Deb 17 November 1911 vol 31 cc790-1W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it will be in the power of the Local Government Board or other authority, under Clause 47 of the National Insurance Bill, to recoup the Belfast Board of Guardians the sum of £35,000 expended by them on the Abbey Sanatorium; and whether he is in a position to make any statement with regard to the question generally of the recoupment of local authorities for expenditure of this nature already incurred?


I am not in a position at present to add anything to the reply given to the hon. Member for Cork City on the 30th October, but I am considering the matter.
