§ 56. Mr. G. MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Health whether stone-breaking is applied as test work to able-bodied persons applying for public assistance; and, if so, in how many cases?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
Yes, Sir, at five places the breaking of stone is included in the scheme formulated by the local public assistance authority for setting to work able-bodied men receiving outdoor relief.
§ Mr. MACDONALD
Can my hon. Friend say whether the approval of the Minister has been given to this kind of work?
