§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
asked the Minister of Health what action he proposes to take with regard to those local health authorities who require a minimum payment to be made to all persons for whom they provide domestic help.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I am collecting up to-date information about the practice of local authorities. As soon as it is available I propose to consider with the local authority interests the possibility of discouraging all authorities from making a334W charge for domestic help they provide for persons in receipt of an allowance from the National Assistance Board.
