HC Deb 13 April 1943 vol 388 c1071W
Mr. Hewlett

asked the Minister of Health, how many parents of evacuee children are still paying nothing towards the upkeep of their children.

Miss Horsbrugh

The latest figures available show that at the beginning of October, 1942, approximately 25,000 parents of unaccompanied children then evacuated were paying nothing either because their means were below the adopted scale or because they were in receipt of assistance.
