§ CAPTAIN MILNE HOME
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If he contemplates extending to England the same relief granted for the maintenance of lunatic paupers in lunatic wards of workhouses, as has been recently promised for similar cases in Scotland?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
, in reply, said, that it was not quite correct to speak of a provision having been "promised for similar cases in Scotland." There was no similarity between the cases in the two countries. In Scotland the cases were under the direct control of the Commissioners of Lunacy, which was not the case in England. He could not, therefore, undertake to extend the same regulations to the two countries.
