HC Deb 19 March 1912 vol 35 cc1850-1W

asked the Secretary for Scot land how many guardians of the children boarded out by the Glasgow Parish Council throughout the whole of the West Coast of Scotland are over seventy years of age; how many guardians have children of their own or other relatives in their cottages who are imbeciles, or are mentally defective, or are suffering from some form of mental disorder; how many guardians have been or are now in receipt of poor relief; and how many guardians are in receipt of the old age pension?


It is not possible for me to answer this question with out an inquiry involving more trouble and expense than would be justified. I under stand that every care is taken to secure suitable guardians.
