Housing. (13 Mar 1922)

Mr Lewis Haslam: Perhaps the Minister of Health will take care that all the medical officers of health and the child welfare societies and other bodies are informed as to what bread should contain.

Sir Alfred Mond: ...out economies of the character I have indicated, to preserve to the best of my ability, and I think I may claim successfully, the vital services of public health, such as tuberculosis, maternity, child welfare, and venereal disease, at least at the efficiency of past years, and even to endeavour somewhat to improve upon it.

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. (10 Jul 1922)

Mr William Graham: ...two plain questions from the point of view of social legislation. What has been the policy in this class of legislation up to the present time?

Performing Animals Bill. (23 Mar 1923)

Mr Thomas Groves: ..., with the assistance of our movement, further measures connected with the inspection of insanitary property, although the Government objected. Then we widened the powers under which maternity and child welfare help was carried on. This has very little to do with animals, but it has to do with the same liberty. We sent one of our lady inspectors round with the idea of trying to assist...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (26 Mar 1923)

Sir Percy Harris: 3s. 11d. per head of the population, and in Westminster 10s. 8d. per head of the population. The only thing, so far as I can see, in which Bethnal Green is more extravagant is in maternity and child welfare, on which they spend 5d. per head, Westminster spending 2d. per head. The House will see, therefore, that this Bill, emergency Measure as it is, only touches the fringe of the...
