§ MR. POLLARD (Lancashire, Eccles)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he will grant a Return showing for each Poor Law Union the area, population, and number of medical officers and their salaries; and whether extra fees are paid, as required by the Poor Law Orders, and the annual amount of such extra fees.
(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I understand that the Poor Law Commission are considering what statistics they will find it necessary to obtain for the purposes of their inquiry. I will communicate with them with a view of ascertaining whether they propose to get information on the subject referred to in 1388 the Question; and, if so, whether it could be made available for the hon. Member.
