asked the Minister of Health how many families are resident in London County Council institutions, other than in Rest Centres; what has been the average weekly family payment; and if it is intended that the increases imposed on residents in Rest Centres should also apply to those in institutions.

The number of families in residence at present is 219. The average family payment is not readily ascertainable as the weekly collections include arrears in respect of families who have now left. The last part of the Question does not arise: the charges for board and lodging are as stated in my reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Chelsea (Commander Noble) on 29th November, 1948, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. and gallant Member.
