Increase of Lunacy


The increase of lunacy has again been made the subject of question in the House of Commons by a Member who has interested himself on the point, and has expressed very strong opinions thereon. He proposes an International Commission on the subject. Such a Commission might collect interesting and valuable information, but we doubt if it would bring us any nearer a definite conclusion from existing statistics than has been reached by the Commissioners for the three divisions of the country in their more recent reports.
