Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the large number of specific charges of irregularities by Poor Law officials that have been brought to his notice, he will cause an inquiry to be held in the matter; and state the nature of such inquiry?
Before justifying an inquiry charges must not merely be specific in character but must be related to specific institutions and individuals. No such charges have yet been brought to my notice. If and when they are, I shall, of course, investigate them.
