I have been asked to reply. The numbers of persons buried partly or wholly at the expense of the Glasgow Public Assistance Department during the years ended 31st May, 1935, and 31st May, 1936, were 1,116 and 1,228 respectively. I understand that in the majority of cases the funeral arrangements are made by the relatives of the deceased person.
