§ MR. COURTHOPE
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board from what sources the funds of the Hollesley Bay, Laindon, and South Ockenden settlements are derived.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
The cost of maintaining the farm colonies at Hollesley Bay and Ockenden is in the main defrayed by payments to the Central (Unemployed) Body for London and the West Ham Distress Committee, respectively, from the Parliamentary grant in aid of expenditure under the Unemployed Workmen Act 1905. The cost of maintaining the branch workhouse at Laindon is defrayed out of the common fund of the Poplar Union. In each case the value of the produce of the farm which is sold or consumed must be taken into account.
