HC Deb 20 July 1876 vol 230 c1628

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he can now state the result of the inquiry held by the Board in the case of Charlotte Hammond, whose death was said to have been caused by destitution; and, whether he will lay upon the Table the evidence taken at the inquiry?


in reply, said, that the result of the inquiry had been exhibited in a letter addressed by the Local Government Board to the Guardians of St. George's Union, and it was published in the newspapers to-day. The House would hardly wish him to read the paper; but the general result was to remove from the Guardians any imputation with respect to the case. The Report would be laid on the Table.
