HC Deb 15 July 1910 vol 19 c838W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether the Government proposes that boards of guardians should be empowered by law to detain feeble-minded females, the present absence of such power to detain whom is a source of difficulty and inconvenience in local administration?


I may refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the Eddisbury Division of Cheshire on 23rd ultimo.
