HC Deb 25 March 1913 vol 50 c1487W

asked the President of the Local Government Board when the Departmental Committee belonging to the question of indoor relief was appointed; how many sittings it has held and when it is likely to issue a Report; and whether he will see that before any fresh Order dealing with indoor relief is issued this House will have an opportunity of discussing the matter?


The Committee for the Consolidation, with amendments, of the Poor Law Orders, was appointed in January, 1911, and has held nearly forty meetings. They are now engaged in preparing a Report.
