SHELTERS FOR OUTCASTS.

Mr. J. STUART asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he had received a memorial from "General" Booth, of the Salvation Army, respecting the establishment of cheap shelters for the outcast poor in London, and what reply he had given to that memorial.

Mr. MATTHEWS replied that he had received such a memorial, and he had replied that the Government could not contribute to charitable works conducted by private persons for either buildings or stores.
