HC Deb 10 July 1923 vol 166 cc1200-1W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the case of Mrs. Rogers, of Bake-well, who has been ejected from her house on an order of the Bake-well magistrates; whether he is aware that the house from which she was ejected is still vacant; that Mrs. Rogers is living in one room with four grown-up sons, such room being used as a living room and bedroom for the whole family; and whether, in view of the grave danger to the health of the family, he will inquire into the whole circumstances of the case, with a view to alternative accommodation being provided?


The attention of the Minister has not previously been drawn to the case referred to. My right hon. Friend has no authority to interfere with the decision of the magistrates, but he will communicate with the local authority as to the sanitary conditions under which Mrs. Rogers is living.
