HC Deb 29 May 1913 vol 53 cc340-1W

asked the President of the Local Government Board when the Order constituting a joint committee of boards of guardians in the county of Salop for dealing with feeble-minded paupers, which in February last was stated by the Board to be in preparation, is likely to be issued; and whether, in view of the fact that the resolutions of the boards of guardians were forwarded to the Local Government Board as far back as 16th August, 1912, he will give instructions for the issue of this Order to be expedited?


This matter has been under my consideration and an Order has been prepared for constituting a joint committee. A draft of the Order has now been sent to the guardians of the various unions concerned.
