HC Deb 22 June 1915 vol 72 c1056W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, to show the amount of relief derived by ratepayers in Ireland from the Old Age Pensions Act and the National Insurance Act, he will state the entire amount spent on poor relief in Ireland in the financial years 1908–9 and 1914–15, respectively, and the difference between those two years' amounts?


The figures for the year 1908–9 were given in my reply to the hon. Member's question of the 21st April last. Those for 1914–15 will not be available for some months.
