§ Mr. R. T. EVANS
asked the Minister of Health the total paid in respect of 570W public assistance in Wales during 1933 and the portion thereof which was disbursed to able-bodied unemployed persons and their dependants?
Sir H. YOUNG
The total amount of out-relief in money and kind paid by Poor Law authorities in Wales (including Monmouth) during the calendar year 1933 was £1,690,107. The returns made to my Department do not distinguish the amounts paid to able-bodied unemployed persons and their dependants.
