HC Deb 21 February 1930 vol 235 c1743W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that persons in many casual wards are compelled to sleep on the floor; and whether he will consider specially recommending to all boards of guardians that beds should be provided for casuals?


I am aware that in certain casual wards casuals are in times of pressure compelled to sleep on the floor and have recently issued a Circular, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend, recommending guardians to make better provision in this respect.
