HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 c507
40. Lieut. - Commander FLETCHER

asked the Minister of Health from how many boards of guardians he has received communications urging the desirability of amending Section 1 (1) of the Poor Law Act, 1899, by substituting 21 years for 18 years as the limit of age of vesting of parental powers in the guardians?


I have received communications on this subject from 95 boards of guardians.
