HC Deb 08 July 1913 vol 55 cc211-2
39. Mr. BARNES

asked the average cost of inmates at Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow, including children, and including all charges for debt, etc., and the same information for Barnhill; the number of eases sent to Lock Hospital, and the cost per head of the same to the parish council; the cost per week of boarded-out children, including clothing, etc.; the average cost per head of out-door poor in Glasgow; the average allowance per week per child at school; the average allowance per week to parents who are keeping children learning a trade; the cost per head of inmates at Duke Street Hospital, including all charges; and the cost per head of inmates at Oak Bank Hospital, including all charges?


I have no information on these subjects beyond what is contained in the last Annual Report of the Local Government Board for Scotland, Command Paper 6720, see particularly pages 262–5. I understand that further particulars are given in the Annual Abstract of Accounts of the Glasgow parish council.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the information sought for is not given in this form in the Return, and that the local authorities have refused to give it in this form?
