asked the Minister of Health if he will state in how many Poor Law institutions stone breaking is still imposed as a task; and what steps he is taking in the matter?

The Report of the inquiry into test work which I propose to publish deals with this matter, and I would ask my hon. Friend to await its publication.

Is my right hon. Friend not aware that in the meantime stone breaking is still being given, and cannot he give the simple information for which I ask? There is nothing confidential about it.

Will the right hon. Gentleman also say when he intends to publish the Report.

Has not the right hon. Gentleman had this matter in hand for a very long time?
