§ MR. NORRIS (Tower Hamlets, Limehouse)
asked the President of the Local Government Board, If the clause in the Local Government Bill allowing 4d. per day to in-door paupers, or any other of the proposed arrangements in the Bill, will affect, either directly or indirectly, the question of boarding out of pauper children; and, whether he can state if the number boarded out during the past year has been above or below the average of former years?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
It will be observed from Clause 21 (4) of the Bill that, in connection with the proposed payment of 4d. per head per day in re- 1819 spect of in-door paupers, the term "indoor paupers" is to include pauper children who are boarded out by the Guardians. The number of children boarded out during the past year has been above the number of previous years.
