HC Deb 02 May 1929 vol 227 c1695
12. Mr. DAY

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the representations made to him with regard to the irregularities that have occurred at the Sreatham Cemetery, he will state if it is now proposed to hold an inquiry?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Chamberlain)

I am in the first instance awaiting the observations of the borough council.


Having regard to the statements made by the grave-diggers at this cemetery does not the right hon. Gentleman think that some action should be taken, and, in the event of his not holding an inquiry, will he receive a deputation of the people who have made these serious statements?


I have taken action. I have called the attention of the borough council to the statements and asked for their observations, and I think it would be proper to await their reply before taking further action.

Forward to
