HC Deb 16 June 1904 vol 136 cc265-6
SIR CARNE RASCH (Essex, Chelmsford)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Public Health Bill, as promised in the King's Speech, will be introduced this session; and if it will include legislation as to the discharge of crude sewage in or near shell fisheries, as recommended by the Royal Commission.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) I should be glad to introduce the Bill if I saw a prospect of its making progress, but I cannot undertake to say beforehand what will be the matters dealt with by the measure.
