§ Mr. LOVAT-FRASER
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to a recent resolution of the Durham Public Assistance Committee that in future Poor Law children in their area should not be boarded out when there was accommodation in the cottage homes, on the ground that many people were exploiting boarded-out children; and if he has any information of cases where boarded-out children have been exploited?
Sir H. YOUNG
I have seen a resolution of the Durham Public Assistance Committee to the effect that vacancies in the cottage homes should be filled before further children are boarded out. I have no evidence of the exploitation of boarded-out children.
