HC Deb 08 December 1920 vol 135 c2143W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Marlborough guardians have recently discharged the porter and portress after 12 and 14 years' service, respectively, with compensation amounting to £25 each, and that the porter served in the Army during the War and is suffering from a severe wound received whilst on service; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


My attention has been called to this case, but I have no power to compel the guardians to increase the amount of the gratuity which they have awarded.
