HC Deb 12 March 1895 vol 31 cc876-7
MR. J. G. TALBOT (Oxford University)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Return of Deaths from Starvation, presented on the 14th August, 1894, and ordered to be printed on the following day, will be delivered; and, what has been the cause of the long delay?


The Return is at present in the hands of the printers, and will be issued as soon as possible. A considerable correspondence between the Local Government Board and Boards of Guardians, respecting Certain cases in the Returns, was necessary before the matter could be got ready for the printers, which is the reason for what would appear to be a long delay.
