HC Deb 06 February 1913 vol 48 cc58-9W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if his attention has been called to the stoppage of 4d. per week from the wages of unemployed relief workmen at Hastings; and if he can direct that the 4d. be paid out of public funds?


My attention has been called to this matter. The Local Government Board are not empowered to direct the payment of the sums referred to out of public funds.
