I have received representa- tions in the sense of the first part of the question, and am giving them my consideration. The audit of the Poplar Guardians' expenditure is now being held, and it is open to any ratepayer to attend and object to payments in respect of relief which he regards as unlawful. I have recently issued a special Order to the Poplar Guardians and I am advancing them the sums necessary to enable them to carry on Poor Law administration on the lines of that Order.
