§ 110. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state what legislation is necessary for the establishment of labour colonies asked for by so many boards of guardians, for dealing with habitual vagrants?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
The Inter-Departmental Committee on Vagrancy, which reported in 1906, made recommendations on this subject. If the hon. and gallant Member will refer to their Report, especially to the summary of their recommendations on pages 118 to 121, he will see what legislation would be necessary for establishing labour colonies on the lines they recommend.
