HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1273

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, in the review of the Poor Law now being undertaken he will see that proposals are submitted permitting aged married paupers of loss than sixty years to live together in workhouses; and whether such proposals will receive his full support.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) If representations are made on this subject to the Royal Commission on the Poor Law they will no doubt receive their consideration. I have not myself received any representations in relation to the matter which I could bring under their notice.
