I am informed that the facts are as stated by the hon. Member. I have seen the representatives of this union myself, and I consented to assist them in obtaining a loan for a number of years in order that they might meet their liabilities if they will reduce their excessive scale of relief, and I never understood why they did not accept that offer. They have a scale of relief far in excess of the neighbouring unions, and they continue paying it instead of putting their finances into a sound position.
