HC Deb 17 November 1926 vol 199 c1857W

asked the Minister of Health the amounts owing by the various boards of guardians in the administrative county of London on account of expenditure on outdoor relief?


The total indebtedness in respect of current expenses on the 30th September last in each of the Unions in the administrative county of London in which up to that date an overdraft had been authorised or a loan had been raised for current expenses was as follows:

Bermondsey 70,605
Bethnal Green 82,920
Greenwich 99,545
Stepney 192,008
Woolwich 45,123
Poplar 551,500

I am unable to allocate this indebtedness between out-door relief and the other current expenditure of the Guardians.
