HC Deb 16 November 1939 vol 353 cc868-9W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that many delays and much hardship have been caused to evacuee applicants from Essex for public assistance in Norfolk and East Suffolk on account of the Essex County Council's refusal to repay the cost of such public assistance allowances; and whether he will give a lead in the matter?

Mr. Elliot

This matter has not previously been brought to my notice, but I am having inquiries made and will communicate with the hon. Member.
