HC Deb 31 January 1929 vol 224 c1161W

asked the Minister of Health with reference to Clause 12 of the Local Government Bill, who, in the future, will appoint the delegates on the assessment committees now appointed by the guardians?


Clause 12 does not contemplate that in the future Poor Law authorities shall be represented as such on assessment committees. Provision is made, however, that existing members appointed by boards of guardians shall continue to be members of assessment committees for the remainder of the term of office for which they were appointed.
