HC Deb 03 December 1931 vol 260 c1283W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that ex-service men have no representation on many public assistance committees; and whether he will take steps to secure that they shall have representation on all such committees?


Under Section 4 of the Poor Law Act, 1930, the public assistance committee consists of members of the council, with or without the addition of a limited number of co-opted members, according to the provisions of the approved administrative scheme. I have no power to interfere either in the election or in the co-option of members of the committee.
