HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 c288W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Bedwelty Union Workhouse has been very seriously damaged by subsidence caused by mining operations; that the buildings are so unsafe that the inmates have had to be removed; and will he consider the advisability of asking the committee dealing with this question to visit Tredegar and inspect the premises so that they may deal with this serious situation in their Report?


I have already communicated particulars of this case to the Royal Commission in question, and will draw their attention to the suggestion made by the hon. Member.
