HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 cc258-9W

asked the Minister of Health what action he is taking with reference to the surcharges which have been made by the district auditor on members of the Poplar Board of Guardians and other boards in respect of relief given to certain labourers for whom work was available during the recent strike?


My right hon. Friend understands that no surcharge of this nature has yet been made in the case of Poplar, but, as he informed the hon. Member on Wednesday last, he has received appeals against surcharges in the case of certain other London boards of guardians. These appeals are receiving consideration, and my right hon. Friend will give a decision in due course.
