§ Mr. Paton
Is the Minister aware of the very tragic circumstances which often attend these very pitiful cases in overcrowded small houses, and, therefore, will he treat it as a matter of great urgency to find accommodation for them and to consider in this respect taking over old houses which could be easily adapted for the care of such children in much the same way as for old people?
§ Mr. Turton
I am certainly aware of the first part of the hon. Gentleman's supplementary, but that is not the difficulty. The difficulty is that at Little Plumstead there is already a villa designed for low-grade children, including cot and chair cases, which cannot at present be used for them because of shortage of staff.
