HC Deb 15 May 1893 vol 12 c906
MR. HOWARD (Middlesex, Tottenham)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, having regard to the unanimous opposition at the recent local inquiry by the authorities in the Tottenham Division to the proposal of the Metropolitan Asylums Board that the temporary fever hospital there should be made a permanent institution, he will suggest to that Board that they should complete the inquiry by themselves taking fresh evidence and making further investigation as to alternative sites within the Metropolitan area?


The inquiry with reference to the hospital at Tottenham was held by two of the Inspectors of the Local Government Board on Tuesday last, and their Report has been received to-day. I understand that the Metropolitan Asylums Board were satisfied with respect to the proposed site before they submitted it for the approval of the Local Government Board.
