§ Mr. OLIVER
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?
§ Sir K. WOOD
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.
