§ Mr. BARNES
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the Local Government Board will issue Regulations showing the powers of Scottish parish councils or boards of guardians to provide sick nursing, in their own homes, for old age pensioners who may be ill or bed-ridden without invalidating their claim to the pension?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
Instructions on this subject were issued last year by the Local Government Board for Scotland in a circular (Poor Law Circular, No. 1 of 1911), of which I am sending a copy to my hon. Friend.
