§ MR. J. G. TALBOT (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can 11 inform the House what expressions of opinion he has received from the various Boards of Guardians in the Metropolis as to the proposed new Board for the care of various classes of children chargeable to the rates?
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (MR. HENBY CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Seaford
The number of definite answers received is very few. Some are in favour, some disapprove of the proposed new Board, and in several cases they have asked for further time to consider the proposals before definite action is taken. But so far as I can judge at present the proposals of the Board would be preferred to those of the Poor Law Schools Committee by a large majority of the authorities.
§ MR. B. L. COHEN (Islington, E.)
asked the right hon. Gentleman whether he would have any objection to lay any of the answers of the Guardians on the Table?
