asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that unemployed persons in Northfleet have to walk a distance of about 14 miles to appear before the Strood Board of Guardians to apply for relief; that the Strood Board of Guardians only meets once a month; and whether he will make representations to the board of guardians as to the possibility of allowing a sub-committee of the board, consisting partly of the Northfleet members, to sit in Northfleet and deal with local cases?

Yes, Sir. I am in communication with the guardians with regard to their arrangements for dealing with applications for relief.
