HC Deb 11 August 1892 vol 7 c307
MR. J. G. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether he is aware of an epidemic of typhus fever in various parts of the Island of Lewis, especially in Carloway; and what steps, if any, have been taken to deal with it, and improve the sanitary condition of the infected districts?

*THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir CHARLES J. PEARSON, Edinburgh and St. Andrews Universities)

No information has reached any of the officials concerned as to the alleged epidemic of typhus fever; but inquiry is being made, and if necessity arises steps will at once be taken to deal with it.
