In the light of the answer given, in view of the lack of publicity under which the public assistance committee now carry on their work, and the lack of uniformity in the administration of the Poor Law, would it not be helpful to get first-hand knowledge from the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health after the experience which she has had?
