HC Deb 28 May 1903 vol 123 c104
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board, in view of the fact that the Local Government Board for Scotland paid to Dr. Blaxall, of the Government Bacteriological Laboratory in London, £105 for 2,220 tubes of glycerinated calf lymph during the year ending 31st March last, will he state whether this lymph was produced at the cost of the Local Government Board.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The lymph referred to was prepared front calves in the stables of the Local Government Board and was uniform with other lymph issued by them, but the cost of its production and preparation was borne by Dr. Blaxall. I should add that Dr. Blaxall is not required to devote his whole time to his services to my Department.
