§ 63. Lieut. - Commander FLETCHER
asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the increase in the cost of lunatic patients maintained in lunatic asylums now chargeable to boards of guardians, and the inadequacy of the sum of 4s. per head repaid to the various unions under the Local Government Act, 1888, he will introduce legislation amending the Act so as to provide for repayment to boards of guardians of at least one-half the cost of all such patients?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given on the 17th July, in answer to a similar question by the hon. Member for Bedwelty (Mr. C. Edwards).
