HC Deb 05 May 1905 vol 145 cc1026-7
MR. KBIR HARDIE (Merthyr Tydvil)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received a copy of the report of Miss Frances Zanetti, a lady inspector under the Chorlton Union, of the facts connected with a recent baby farming case in Manchester; and whether he proposes to introduce or give facilities for a Bill to amend the law to meet such cases.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) My attention has been called to the report in question, and I shall give careful attention to any further information which I may receive on the sobject; but I am not prepared to introduce legislation to amend the existing Infant Life Protection Act, nor can I undertake to recommend that facilities should be given to a Bill for that purpose.
