HC Deb 05 July 1909 vol 7 c797

asked whether he is proposing to issue a new boarding-out of children order, with the object of doing away with the option of guardians to work with or without a voluntary boarding out committee; and whether, before issuing any such order, he will give an opportunity to the Association of Poor Law Unions of submitting their views upon the matter to him?


I am proposing to issue an Order on this subject. I received a deputation with regard to it from the council of the association on Thursday last, and they represented to me their views upon the matter.
