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.
