§ Mr. MILLS
asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the 1084W financial state of boards of guardians throughout the kingdom; and whether the Government propose to grant any financial assistance to boards that are destitute of funds due to the state of unemployment over a long period?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am aware that certain boards of guardians are at the present time experiencing financial difficulties, and I am prepared to sanction temporary arrangements for meeting these difficulties. It is not the intention of the Government to grant any financial assistance.
