HC Deb 25 February 1920 vol 125 cc1679-80
72. Mr. CAIRNS

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the case of a Mrs. Handridge, against whom an ejectment order was granted at the Woking Police Court on the 21st January, to come into operation at the expiration of the month; whether he is aware that this woman is a soldier's widow with children, and is unable to obtain other accommodation; and whether he can take any action in the matter?


This particular case has not been brought to my notice, but the granting or refusing of orders of ejectment is a matter for the Courts; and if the Court is satisfied that, having regard to the provisions of those Acts, an order should be made, I have no power to intervene.
