HC Deb 07 May 1913 vol 52 cc2063-4W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the fact that the partner of a medical man, who is a member of the Bermondsey Board of Guardians, holds the position of district medical officer to the same board; and whether he proposes to take steps to, prevent guardians allowing persons to sit on a board whose partners are under contract with it?


The situation is, I believe, as described in the question. It is no doubt open to criticism, but is not illegal, and I have no authority to take the course suggested.
