HC Deb 07 November 1932 vol 270 c35W

asked the Minister of Health what proposals he has to make to relieve the hardships to which his attention has been drawn by the Glamorgan Public Assistance Committee with regard to the shortage of boots and clothes in their administrative area?


The only communication my right hon. Friend has received from the Glamorgan County Council on the subject consists of the terms of a resolution passed by the public assistance committee in which it is suggested that the Government be urged to increase the scale of unemployment benefit. The hon. Member will be aware this this is not a matter for my Department.
