HC Deb 03 July 1903 vol 124 c1258
MR. MANSFIELD (Lincolnshire, Spalding)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board will he give instructions to Poor Law inspectors to report as to the number of cases of phthisis there are in each workhouse visited by them; whether or not such cases are isolated; whether such cases are receiving special treatment, such as the open-air treatment, or in what way they are being treated as to diet, medicines and surroundings.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) I propose to give instructions to the effect that each Poor Law inspector shall include in the report made by him after his ordinary inspection of a workhouse particulars as to the number of cases of phthisis there, and I am considering what further particulars on the subject should be added.
