HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 cc649-50W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will advise local authorities and boards of guardians that in the case of a test worker in receipt of outdoor relief the earnings of his children should not count as his own earnings?


In deciding whether destitution exists in a particular case it is the duty of the guardians to take into account all means of subsistence available to the applicant, and this duty is not affected by the question whether the applicant is or is not engaged on test work.
