HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2956-7W

Mr. S. ROBINSON asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the hardship and the consequent breaking up of homes of persons in receipt of Poor Law assistance caused by the action of certain boards of guardians in refusing to authorise non-resident relief, he will take the necessary steps to secure legislation whereby it shall be made compulsory upon all Poor Law authorities to grant non-resident relief, thus obviating the removal of recipients to their legal place of settlement?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 17th July last, in reply to a similar question by the hon. Member for Bedwelty (Mr. C. Edwards).
