HC Deb 15 July 1909 vol 7 c2426W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he has recently received a petition relating to the supervision of children boarded out by guardians within the limits of the Union; and, if so, will he, before taking action to carry into effect the objects of the petition, be willing to allow boards of guardians, through the Association of Poor Law Unions or otherwise, to express their views on the matter?


I received a deputation on this subject from the council of the association on the 1st instant, and they expressed to me their views with regard to it.
