§ MR. COCHRANE-BAILLIE (St. Pancras, N.)
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of a statement that he made last Session, that every district should have regulations as to the cleanliness of Dairies and Cowsheds, he has had any reports from the sanitary authorities that his instructions have been carried out, and that a more stringent supervision is being maintained?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's-in-the East
In accordance with the promise I gave last Session, letters have been addressed to the sanitary authorities urging them to make regulations with regard to dairies, cowsheds, and milk-shops, in all cases in which there has been any reason to suppose that such regulations have not yet been made. The Annual Reports, which are now being received from the Medical Officers of Health, are carefully examined with the view of ascertaining whether special communications are necessary in particular cases, and I am glad to be able to say that, in the large majority of cases, the Medical Officers of Health have stated that the inspections of dairies, &c., have been made with satisfactory results.
