HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1070
58. Mr. Horabin

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to improve conditions in hostels for evacuated women and children in Newquay?

Mr. M. MacDonald

My regional officers are actively pursuing on the spot the measures necessary to improve conditions in these hostels, and the latest reports I have received indicate that considerable progress is being made. The local council have recently appointed a welfare committee with an experienced social worker as their full-time paid welfare organiser, a step which I welcome and which should lead to great improvement in the work.
