56. Mr. POINTER
asked the President of the Local Government Board if his attention has been called to the Report of the sanitary inspector of the Darfield Urban District Council regarding a house-to-house visitation made by him in the district; whether he is aware that thirty four-roomed houses are each occupied by two families, and that in 102 cases a proper division of the sexes cannot take place; and whether he will bring pressure to bear upon the council to provide adequate accommodation?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
A copy of this Report was received by the Board yesterday in response to a request made by them on the 20th December last, and the matter is receiving attention.
