HC Deb 16 June 1910 vol 17 cc1467-8

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that patients chargeable to Poor Law unions who die in the county asylums are described as pauper patients in the notices of death sent out from the asylums; and, as such a description is not only unnecessary but very objectionable and hurtful to the feelings of the relatives at a time of bereavement, will he at once take steps to stop the practice?


I am in communication with the Commissioners in Lunacy on this matter.
