HC Deb 29 May 1941 vol 371 cc2023-4W
Miss Cazalet

asked the Minister of Health why the arrangements made by his predecessor, acting upon the advice of his medical officers, recognising the camps for 290 children for permanent occupation all the year round, have been altered by decreasing the numbers; and what are the fresh circumstances that justify this decrease?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to her previous Question on 1st May. The maximum number of children to be accommodated per dormitory was reviewed in the light of experience gained since the first occupation of the camps, with particular reference to the spreading of infectious diseases.
