§ MR. ASCROFT
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Departmental Committee which was appointed last year to consider the possibility of preventing the great waste of food in workhouses and infirmaries have completed their inquiries; and, if not, whether he can furnish any information as to when the Report will be presented?

The Committee have completed their inquiry, and have recently submitted their Report. The Report will be presented to Parliament at an early date.
