Response

Advice given - 4 April 2016

To our knowledge there are no residential homes in Richmond in which residents are made to do chores.

The remainder of the request is therefore not applicable.

Please note that our responses were accurate to the best of our knowledge at the time of release, and have not subsequently been updated. This information should be considered an historical record only.
