HC Deb 27 April 1932 vol 265 cc385-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office how many applications have been made 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?


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.
