HC Deb 07 December 1922 vol 159 cc2026-7W

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether he is aware that the Edmonton Union are being charged with the maintenance of about 160 of the unemployed marchers; that the cost to the guardians up to the present is about £500; and whether, in view of the fact that the men receiving relief are not ordinarily domiciled in this district, he will consider the possibility of making a grant to the guardians to meet the additional expense thrown upon them?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave yesterday to a similar question by the hon. Member for North Tottenham (Mr. R. Morrison), a copy of which I will send him.
