HC Deb 28 February 1933 vol 275 cc184-5
62. Mr. CAPE

asked the Minister of Health the number of persons that have passed through the casual wards in the County of Cumberland during the years 1930, 1931, and 1932; and what representations have been made by his Department that more casual wards should be opened in that county?


A count of casuals is only made on Fridays. The highest number so counted in the three years mentioned was 92 in June, 1931. In 1929 the Ministry of Health suggested that two wards should be reopened and this was done.
