HC Deb 19 March 1925 vol 181 c2467
55. Major COLFOX

asked the Minister of Health for how many years bedsteads and bedding have been provided for the women casuals at the Bridport Poor Law Institution; and whether night-clothes are always provided?


I am informed that bedsteads, bedding and night-clothes have for many years been provided for the use of women casuals at Bridport. I am glad to have this opportunity of correcting the list circulated with the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Oxford (Captain Bourne) on the 17th February, and to be able to make a similar correction in the case of the Burton-on-Trent, Dorchester, Sculcoates and Settle Unions.
