§ Captain ERSKINE-BOLST
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office how many applications have been made 386W assistance committee of Newcastle-upon-Tyne with respect to the new scale of payments recently adopted by the committee; and the reason for issuing such instructions?
Sir H. YOUNG
I have not issued any instructions, but I have asked the town council to reconsider certain proposals for the alteration of their practice in the administration of the Poor Laws. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of my letter and of the circular to which it refers.
