" In this country there are 13.500,000 to 16,000,000 people who are spending too little on food through poverty, while 23.000,000 are not spending enough on the right kind of food," declared Fr. Lewis Watt, S.J., addressing clergymen and laymen of many denominations in the Bradford Y.M.C.A. rooms.
Fr. Watt was lecturing on malnutrition to the inter-denominational Bradford Christian Council on Social Questions.
The problem of malnutrition, said Fr. Watt. concerned not only the doctor, the bio-chemist, and the statesman, but also the Christian, for man's spiritual development was not and could not be independent of his physical development.
To Be Printed As Pamphlet After his address an Anglican vicar proposed that Fr. Watt's lecture should be printed and circulated to all the affiliated bodies of the Christian Council, being an expert analysis of the problems and so full of matter that it would repay careful study.
Fr. Watt's consent to this suggestion having been secured, it was unanimously approved.
