§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland, in view of the statement contained in the public health circular of March 10th last, entitled Administrative Control of Pulmonary Phthisis, will he state whether arrangements will be made for the notification of the disease in each of the six crofting counties.
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
The question whether the Infectious Disease (Notification) Act should be extended to include consumption is one for the decision of the local authorities concerned. The procedure required to be carried through is sot forth in Section 7 of the aforesaid Act. I have also to refer the hon. Member to Part IV. of the Local Government Board's Circular of March 10th last to which he alludes.
