§ Mr. SHEPHERD
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that in many casual wards inmates have to lie on cement or brick floors; whether this is allowed by regulations; and whether, if it is, he will take immediate steps to have them so amended as to prohibit this?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The regulations require the guardians to provide proper sleeping accommodation, and my right hon. Friend has, as at present advised, no ground for supposing that they are not observed.
