§ 16. Mr. DAY
asked the Minister of Health the last occasion on which the in specters of his Department visited the Hollesley Bay colony and the Belmont institution when the last reports were made by his inspectors on the administration of these establishments; and whether the improvements recommended by his inspectors have been carried out in accordance with their recommendations?
As regards the Hollesley Bay colony I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) on the 21st March last. The Belmont institution has been inspected from time to time, the last occasion being on the 28th February last, and suggestions made for improvements in points of detail have been adopted. I am not, however, satisfied that the best use is being made of the institution, and conferences between my officers and the committee of management have taken place with a view to reorganising the arrangements.
I am not in a position to say that every single detail has been carried out, but the majority of the recommendations have been.
