HC Deb 09 December 1912 vol 45 c50W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the secret land inquiry appointed by him will co-operate with the secret inquiry into housing and sanitation in Surrey and Hampshire which has been started by the Bishop of Winchester; and, having regard to the opportunities of the country clergy for giving valuable information, he will approach the archbishops and bishops with a view to their assisting his researches, so that social legislation may be introduced based on the fullest knowledge?


I am sure that the Land Inquiry Committee will welcome any assistance which will lead to a fuller knowledge of the conditions which they are investigating. Perhaps my hon. Friend will himself approach the right rev. gentlemen in question.
