HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 cc1556-7W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary where the five children whose parents were sentenced to six months' imprisonment at the Mansfield Session, on 4th December, for neglecting their children at Selston, are being cared for; and whether he is aware that one of the children, aged nine months, died in the hospital through the neglect of the parents?

Mr. Peake

Three of the surviving children of these parents are at present in Children's Homes of the Nottinghamshire County Council. The fourth child who is in hospital will shortly go to a convalescent home. I am aware that the youngest child has unhappily died and I understand that the inquest has not yet been concluded?
