§ MR. LODER () Brighton
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Government intend Votes to introduce the Oysters Bill again this session.
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
Since the publication of Dr. Bulscrode's report and since legislation was proposed on this subject, there is no doubt that a good deal has been done by voluntary action to remove the evils complained of, and it is alleged that further improvement is still in progress. I have directed one of the medical inspectors of' the Board to report me as to this. The places complained of are comparatively few, and I am awaiting the inspector's report before deciding whether reintroduction of the Bill is necessary and desirable or not.
