HC Deb 14 December 1926 vol 200 cc2769-70
57. Mr. W. BAKER

asked the Minister of Health whether he will issue a statement showing the number of labour colonies in existence in this country, together with the necessary financial particulars to show their net cost?


I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a reply to a question put by the hon. Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) which contains information concerning the Hoflesley Bay Colony. My right hon. Friend has no information of other similar colonies which may be in existence as charitable institutions. If the hon. Member desires information as to Government colonies he will, no doubt, address a question to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour.
