HC Deb 14 February 1951 vol 484 cc76-7W
Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Health if he will request local authorities and hospital management committees responsible for former workhouses to remove from these old buildings all names or initials identifying them as former workhouses.

Mr. Marquand

On 20th August, 1948, my predecessor suggested that early consideration should be given to re-naming former poor law establishments. The suggestion has been widely adopted and I do not think further action on my part is required.
