Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
When we come to consider recommendations. we find that the ground has already been covered by various committees and other bodies which, at different times within recent years. have investigated the problems associated with immigration in far great detail than has been possible for us. Moreover, these bodies were composed of persons having intimate local knowledge. The 1926 Report on the Public Health of Rangoon contains numbers of recommendations which still largely await translation into action. The Report of the Committee appointed to enquire into the effects of the removal of rent control in Rangoon contains additional information and statistics which are of value in finding a solution of the housing problem, and the minor recommendations made in paragraph 15) of that report give more than an indication of the lines on which progress might be made. Another Committee has reported on the re-organisation of the Burma Public Health Department, and certain recommendations made by it have an important bearing on the health administration of the city and port. The Government has made a number of investigations into the possibility of obtaining additional water supplies for the city. The questions we have been considering have thus been largely explored, and the need is now for action.
