HC Deb 16 July 1925 vol 186 c1548W
Lieut.-Colonel WATTS-MORGAN

asked the Minister of Health to what punishment a casual is liable if he refuses a task unsuited to his age, strength and capacity; what is the remedy if a casual is given a task not so suited; has he any right of appeal: and to what punishment is a labour master liable if he imposes a task not so suited?


A casual is not liable to any punishment for the refusal of a task unsuited to his age, strength or capacity. The second and third parts of the question therefore do not arise. A Poor Law officer found to be misusing his powers would be subject to disciplinary action taken by a board of guardians or by myself.
