55. Mr. F. HALL
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the fact that the partner of a medical man, who is a member of the Bermondsey board of guardians, holds the position of district medical officer to the same board; and whether he proposes to take steps to prevent guardians allowing persons to sit on a board whose partners are under contract with it?
Mr. F. HALL
Considering the tone of the right hon. Gentleman's reply, will he be good enough to communicate with the Bermondsey board of guardians?
