§ MR. BARKER (Penryn and Falmouth)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board with reference to the proved charges against the engineers at the Grove Park workhouse for improperly receiving stores, and to the subsequent increases of their salaries by the Greenwich guardians, what reply has been received from the guardians in response to the letter from the Local Government Board; and what action is proposed to be taken in order to compel this authority to carry out the wishes of the Department in this and other matters.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
the guardians promised to reconsider and report on the increases of salaries to the officers referred to. I have asked to be furnished with a copy of the report, but have not at present received it. I have now repeated my request.
