HC Deb 27 March 1905 vol 143 c1195

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether he will obtain, if possible, through the Foreign Office, and lay, a Report showing the methods adopted in the great Continental cities for dealing with hungry and ill-clad children, and the extent to which, if any, public moneys are spent upon the feeding and clothing needs of such children.


My noble friend the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has promised to obtain what information he can for me on the points raised in the Question. I will consider whether the Board can supplement this information in any way, and also in what form the Report, when received, can best be issued.
