HC Deb 24 February 1893 vol 9 cc328-9
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

I wish to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Government has had under consideration the resolution passed at a Conference of representatives of Port Sanitary Authorities on 17th February at the Guildhall, in which they state their opinion that inasmuch as special cholera precautions carried out by the Port Sanitary Authorities are for the benefit of the whole population, these precautions so far as they are special should be carried out at the Imperial expense; and whether, in view of the urgent necessity of protecting the inland towns from disease imported from foreign parts, the Govern- ment will concur in this recommendation?


I have as yet had no official communication with regard to the resolution referred to, but when it is received by me it shall have my careful consideration.
