HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 cc863-4

asked the President of the Local Government Board if his attention has been drawn to the resolution of the National Association for the Feebleminded urging the Government to pass a Bill making the permanent segregation of the feeble-minded compulsory; and whether in the interests of these defectives themselves, for the sake of sufferers still unborn, and for the relief of the community from the ever-increasing burden of the taxation paid by the fit for the support of the unfit, he will bring in a Bill to give effect of this resolution?


asked when His Majesty's Government propose to give effect to the Report of the Royal Commission on the Care and Control of the Feebleminded, issued three years ago, by bringing forward a measure to carry out its recommendations?


I have every hope that legislation dealing with this question will be undertaken next Session.
