HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 cc1695-6W

asked the Minister of Health how many guardians' committees in the county of Cornwall do not provide night garments for boys in their care; and which of these committees have failed to provide such garments after being recommended by the inspectors of the Ministry of Health to do so?


I have learnt from reports of my inspectors that the county council do not provide night garments for boys in any of their three homes, although in the case of the Bodmin Home the council promised to consider the matter. I have more than once called their attention to this matter—the last time being the 13th of this month—and will press the point further if necessary.
