§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, what action he proposes to take in carrying out the conclusions of the Royal Commission on Tuberculosis, seeing that not only the Commissioners but a large number of experts outside the Commission are agreed that far more stringent measures are required than those at present enforced to prevent the sale of such milk as contains tubercle bacilli.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
I am giving attention to the Report of the Royal Commission, but am not at present in a position to take action upon it. The Report has only recently been presented, and as yet the Appendices referred to in it have not been issued. The conclusions of the Commissioners relate to matters of much importance, and must be carefully considered by both the Local Government Board and the Board of Agriculture.
