HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 cc1042-3W
Lieut.-Colonel CROFT

asked the Minister of Health whether there is any liability for a municipal distress committee to pay the scale of relief published by the Ministry of Health; and whether that scale has to be paid in cash and not in goods, as is the custom with some municipalities?


No, Sir. The only scale of relief which the Ministry of Health have prescribed is that contained in the Metropolitan Common Poor Fund (Outdoor Relief) Regulations, and that scale only governs the expenditure which may be charged by Metropolitan Boards of Guardians on the Common Poor Fund.
