§ Mr. E. Smith
asked the Minister of Health whether he can set out in tabular form the scales of relief and guiding rules for the public assistance committees or officials of the London County Council, and the cities of Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham, Liverpool and Stoke-on-Trent?
§ Mr. Elliot
I regret that owing to the elaborate and complex nature of the scales 1387W and guiding principles adopted by the local authorities, it is impossible to set out the informaton desired by the hon. eMmber in a tabular form which would be of any value for purposes of comparison. I will, however, communicate to the hon. Member the information which I have received from the authorities concerned.
