HC Deb 09 December 1878 vol 243 cc306-7

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, respecting his statement on July 12th last that the time had come when inquiry should be specially made in reference to the towns in England where an official Report under "The Artizans and Labourers Dwellings Act, 1875," has been made and no action taken upon it, Whether he has taken any steps in such inquiry, and, if so, with what result; and, whether he will lay the Correspondence before Parliament?


in reply, said, he had corresponded with the Local Government Board on the subject referred to; and if the hon. Baronet would move for that Correspondence, there would be no objection to its being laid on the Table.
