HC Deb 19 April 1923 vol 162 c2313W

asked the Minister of Health the number of workshops for the blind which have been opened in connection with the operation of the Blind Persons Act, 1920; and whether the utilisation of the charitable institutions has given the help that his Department anticipated?


Since the passing of the Blind Persons Act, 1920, four new workshops have been opened and considerable extensions have been made to six existing workshops. The answer to the latter part of the question is in the affirmative.
