HC Deb 12 December 1906 vol 167 cc337-8

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether there is any intention of his Department to make inquiries in other metropolitan and other areas similar to those which have been and are being made in Poplar and West Ham.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) If the circumstances of any other union should appear to me to make a public inquiry or a special investigation expedient I shall direct one to be made. An investigation as to the expenditure on the workhouse buildings in the parish of Hammersmith is now being made.
