§ 56. Colonel Sir A. HOLBROOK
asked the Minister of Health whether he will take some action in furtherance of village settlement schemes for tuberculosis ex-service men, as recommended by the Barlow Report of 1918, by the establishment of additional settlements; and whether it is now contemplated to complete the village settlements at Papworth Hall, Cambridgeshire, and Barrowmore, in Cheshire?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)
I have recently discussed this question with representatives of the British Legion at a meeting at which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions was also present. I am endeavouring to arrange for a personal visit to the settlement at Papworth, and also to that at Preston Hall, Kent, during the Whitsun Recess, and I hope to be able to arrive at a final decision on the whole question very soon afterwards.
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
Would the right hon. Gentleman, in making that inquiry, take into consideration also the position of this matter in Scotland, in which there are no village settlements at all?
