HC Deb 15 November 1920 vol 134 c1532W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the inadequate contributions to the Poor Law unions through county councils, based on the Local Government Act, 1888, due to various factors, such as increased cost of materials, and increased bonuses and salaries to officers and officials of Poor Law unions; and if he will take steps to increase the allowance to such an extent as to refund the amount paid in full which is paid in increased salaries and bonuses and increased cost of living?


I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the reply given on the 21st ultimo to a similar question.
