HC Deb 14 March 1905 vol 142 c1384

I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate whether he is aware that, at a recent meeting of the Lewis District Committee, it was proposed that a medical officer of health should be appointed for the Island of Lewis; and, in the event of effect being given to the suggestion, will arrangements be made for the new officer to be responsible to the Local Government Board direct and not to the medical officer of health for the county.


The Board have no information of the meeting referred to and are at present awaiting the action of the district committee, with whom any arrangements regarding the appointment and its conditions primarily rest. I may further refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave on February 27th, † 1905.
