HC Deb 22 November 1926 vol 200 c47W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to an application for relief by a man, with a wife and four children, to the Shardlow Board of Guardians whose total income is 31s. per week from unemployment insurance, out of which a weekly rent of 14s. has to be paid; whether he is aware that the guardians refuse to pay relief on the ground that such an income is adequate; and whether, in view of the failure of the guardians to carry out their statutory duties in this case, he will have inquiry made info the circumstances?


My right hon. Friend's attention has not previously been called to this case, but if the hon. Member will give particulars he will make the inquiry suggested.
