§ Mr. SHEPHERD
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the report and the opinion therein expressed in Circular 1203, pages 65 and 66, as to the desirability of making direct admission the rule at all casual wards, he proposes to take any action in the matter, seeing that in a large number of eases admission can only be obtained through the police or relieving officer?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
In paragraph 3 of a circular (No. 1183) issued on 20th March, 1931, I have already drawn the attention of the authorities responsible for the relief of the casual poor to the desirability of making direct admission the rule at all casual wards.
