HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1804W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that all boards of guardians have power to grant £10 to any poor persons desirous of emigrating, under an Act passed about 60 years ago, as stated in Glen's Poor Law; and if he can indicate to what extent advantage is taken of this?


Boards of guardians have powers to assist emigration and are not now bound by the £10 limitation referred to. Eight hundred and fifty-five persons were assisted to emigrate by boards of guardians in the course of the year 1922.
