HC Deb 04 February 1926 vol 191 c319

asked the Minister of Health whether the Report of Miss Roberts, one of the Poor Law inspectors, has been received relative to the dietary provided for the inmates of Abergavenny workhouse; and, if so, what action will be taken to induce the guardians to give effect to the recommendations of the inspector?


The Report from the inspector referred to in the question related only to the diet for the sick in this institution. It suggested that this diet was monotonous, and that the medical officer should be asked to revise it. The Report was communicated to the guardians of the Abergavenny Union, and the guardians have informed me that the recommendations of the inspector have "been conveyed to the medical officer, who has complete discretion with regard to the dietary of the sick.
