Mr. EDMUND HARVEY
asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will state in what unions is stone-pounding at present permitted as a task; and at what dates was the Board's permission given, in these cases, to the guardians to impose it?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I am sending the hon. Member a list of the unions in which stone-pounding as a task for vagrants has been approved by the Local Government Board as an alternative to the tasks prescribed by the General Order of 18th December, 1882, with the date on which the permission in each case was given.
