Journal of The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland Vol. XIV No. 5 1927/1928
In March, 1925, a Commission was appointed, and it is their
Report, dated August, 1927, of which a summary is now submitted
to you. It is possible that some of the defects in particular,
cases may have been remedied, and later on I shall suggest
that a return should be prepared by the Local Government
Department bringing the information on matters of importance
up to date. The subjects will be dealt with under the following
heads :—Treatment of the Sick in Hospitals; County Homes;
Dublin City and County; Classes which should be dealt with
outside County, Homes; viz., Mental Defectives, Unmarried
Mothers, Children; Home Assistance (Outdoor, Relief);
Method of Administration; Finance.
