§ Mr. ASTOR
asked the President of the Local Government Board how many local authorities have intimated to the Board that they were prepared to treat tuberculous persons, who are other than insured persons or dependants, under the Grant promised by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in a letter to Mr. Hobhouse, dated 31st July, 1912; and if he will give the names of these authorities?
§ Mr. BURNS
Ninety-four councils have submitted to the Board schemes for providing treatment for persons suffering from tuberculosis, making no distinction as to whether such persons are insured or non-insured. The names are given in List A below. It also appears from estimates submitted to the Board in connection with the new maintenance Grant that eleven other councils intend that their schemes shall relate to the whole community. See List B below:—534W
