HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c670
Colonel RAWSON

asked the Home Secretary whether he is prepared to take steps for the deletion of the description pauper patients from the notices of death sent out from the asylums, as such a description may be hurtful to the feelings of the relatives at a time of distress and bereavement?


I have communicated with the Commissioners in Lunacy, and I do not think there will be any serious difficulty in making the change desired. The alteration of the form of notice will require the approval of the Lord Chancellor, and I am asking the Commissioners to submit the matter for his approval.
