HC Deb 14 June 1901 vol 95 cc425-6
MR. CATHCART WASON (Clackmannan and Kinross)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if in the case of sparsely populated districts, especially in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, the Government will provide that medical men may be appointed officers of health without holding diplomas in sanitary science, public health, and State medicine.


The matter is entirely regulated by statute, and the Government have no power in the matter.
