House of Commons. Friday, Feb. 14th. Proposed International Commission on Lunacy

Extract

Mr. Kenny asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the magnitude of the annual increase in the number of lunatics, as shown in the Parliamentary paper issued during the recess, he would take measures to promote an International Commission of Inquiry into the subject of the general increase of insanity, with the object of devising means to arrest its progress.—Sir Matthew White Ridley replied that he bad no evidence in his possession to lead him to believe that any practical result would follow the appointment of such a Commission, but he was prepared to receive representations on the subject from the hon. member.
