§ 40. Mr. BOOTH
asked the President of the Local Government Board if his attention has been called to the case of E. V. D., of Battersea, who has been rescued from a life of vice; whether he is aware that the officers of the Children Act reported that her father, mother, and five children under seventeen years, together with a married daughter, her husband, and two children, lived in a room with one bed; and whether he has instituted an inquiry into the housing condition of the neighbourhood and into the administration of the Health Acts by the local authority?
§ Mr. BOOTH
Will the right hon. Gentleman inquire from the officers referred to in the question, the officers administering the Children Act—passed by the present Postmaster-General—and see whether he cannot get full information from them?
