HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1121W

asked the Minister of Health if he will now give instructions for statistics regarding the number of people receiving Poor Law relief and the amounts of such relief to be furnished annually or biennially by the different authorities to the Local Government Board in accordance with the pre-war practice?


My right hon. Friend proposes to obtain, as early as possible next year, full statistics as to the number of persons in receipt of poor relief and the cost.
