HC Deb 28 February 1929 vol 225 c2195W

asked the Home Secretary whether, arising out of the two cases at the City coroner's court on 18th February last, in which verdicts were given of death from starvation and exposure, he will state how many verdicts of death from starvation, or accelerated by destitution, have been given in the Metropolis and in the provinces, respectively, during the last three months; and whether he will restore the publication of the annual lists of starvation cases which were published for many years and dropped in 1918?


I have been asked to reply. The information requested in the first part of the question is not yet available; as regards the second part of the question, I would invite the hon. Member's attention to the replies given to questions on the subject on 19th May and 18th June, 1925, copies of which I am sending to him.
