Casuals in these wards may be required to perform a task of stone-breaking in small work cells which open out of their sleeping cells. At Frome the task is by time. I understand that the Somersetshire County Council have the question of discontinuing this task under consideration. At Leighton Buzzard only selected men are required to perform the stone-breaking. The task is by quantity, and the casual is required to break into smaller pieces about 2 cwt. of stone which has already been broken into lumps varying from 1 lb. to 2 lbs. in weight.
