HC Deb 12 July 1915 vol 73 cc655-6
14. Mr. MILLAR

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been directed to the necessity for making provision in Scotland for the institution of child-welfare centres in different parts of the country; whether he is aware that a large grant has been obtained for the purpose of providing such centres in England while no grant has, so far, been obtained for Scotland; and what steps he proposes to take in the matter?


asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether Scotland is receiving any Grant for child welfare, corresponding to that now made to England (Class II., Vote 17, Sub-head X.); and, if not, whether any steps are being taken to provide an equivalent Grant of that character for Scotland, particularly in view of the additional duties proposed to be laid on local authorities by the Notification of Births (Extension) Bill?


The matter has been receiving his close attention and he is in communication with the Treasury with regard to it.
