10Disqualifications

(1)A person shall, after the appointed day, be disqualified for becoming or being a member of the council of a county or county borough if he has within twelve months before becoming, or has since becoming, such a member received poor relief, except that he shall not be so disqualified by reason only that he or a member of his family has received medical or surgical treatment, or been an inmate of an institution for that purpose, or received relief which could have been granted under the Blind Persons Act, 1920, or been maintained in any place as a pauper lunatic :

Provided that a person who is at the date of the commencement of this Act a member of any such council and has received poor relief before that date, shall not be thereby disqualified for being such a member.

(2)A person shall be disqualified for being a member of a committee or sub-committee thereof constituted under an administrative scheme who would be disqualified for becoming or being a member of the council by which the committee is appointed, and a person who acts as a member of such a committee or subcommittee when disqualified shall be liable to the like penalties as if he had acted as a member of the council.

(3)Notwithstanding anything in section forty-six of the Local Government Act, 1894, a person shall not, on or after the appointed day, be disqualified for becoming or being a member of any local authority to which that section applies by reason that he or any member of his family has received poor relief, if by virtue of the provisions of this section the receipt of that relief would not disqualify him for becoming or being a member of a county or county borough council.
