HC Deb 07 May 1913 vol 52 cc2064-5W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he can state the number and names of the counties in which guardians have formed, or propose to form, joint committees for the purpose of administration to relieve the casual paupers by the way-ticket system?


Seven schemes of combination for this purpose have been approved. These relate to the counties of Berkshire with some unions in Bucks and Oxford, Devon, Lincolnshire, including unions in Leicester, Northants and Nottingham, Hampshire, Suffolk, Surrey, and Sussex. I understand that proposals for committees are under consideration in some twenty-five other counties.
